  Please replace xfonts-mathml with fonts-stix in recommends

Status in libreoffice package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The libreoffice-common package currently recommends xfonts-mathml,
  which was removed from Debian in 2014 with the rationale that it is
  superseded by fonts-stix (and that it has a license problem).  Please
  replace it with fonts-stix.

  Since xfonts-mathml is only a Recommends: rather than Depends:, I'm
  going to go ahead and remove xfonts-mathml from wily.  If for some
  reason fonts-stix is not a suitable replacement and xfonts-mathml is
  still needed, please feel free to reupload it to the archive and close
  this bug.
