 Package updates

 attachfile2 v2.10 2019/11/24

 This package has been moved to a separate repository, and updated:
 The perl header comment in the (obsolete) pdfatfi script was
 corrupted at the previous release
 Some perl warnings about deprecated syntax were addressed.

 NOTE to installers:
 The executable wrapper for pdfatfi.pl will need adjusting to new location

 pdftexcmds v0.31 2019/11/24

 This package has been moved to a separate repository, and updated:
 Call iftex package  directly rather than the ifpdf and ifluatex  wrapper packages.
 Remove unused calls to luatex-loader.
 Update to support \filemoddate \elapsedtime and other commands in xetex as
 \pdf at filemoddate, \pdf at elapsedtime
 Adjust \pdf at escapestring in luatex to produce the same as in pdftex in the 8bit
 range and not drop all non ascii characters.
 Lua support is now just in pdftexcmds.lua, not duplicated as oberdiek.pdftexcmds.lua

 pdfcolmk v2.0

 This package has been obsolete and has done nothing since pdftex 1.40
 was released in 2007. It has now been moved to a separate distribution
 and is an empty stub just in case there are still documents that
 reference it.

 epstopdf (and epstopdf-base) v2.7

 This package has been moved to a separate repository.
