the daemon told me:
> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.

> Name of contribution: mathastext
> Author's name: Jean-FranÃ§ois Burnol
> Package version: 1.15c
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/mathastext
> Summary description: Use the text font in simple mathematics
> License type: lppl

> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:

> Optimal typographical results for documents containing

> specifically designed to match a given text typeface.
> Although the list of freely available math fonts (alongside
> the Computer Modern and AMS extension fonts) is slowly
> expanding (fourier, kpfonts, mathdesign, pxfonts, txfonts,
