Bug description:
  already in xenial

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package currently recommends xfonts-mathml, which was removed from Debian in 2014 with the rationale that it is superseded by fonts-stix (and that it has a license problem).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

  no executable code

  [Quality assurance]
  no executable code

  no further deps needed: see http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/component-mismatches.txt

  [Standards compliance]
  trivial package, maintained by Debian

  no executable code, maintained by Debian, stable/low frequency updates

  [Background information] 
  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.
