Summary description:  CTAN package checker

Announcement text:
 2020-11-20 (2.2.0)
    - small code changes due to new release of blake2 library
    - replace deprecated tempdir crate by tempfile crate
    - (Experimental) instead of latex-firstaid use latex/firstaid when
      checking path names in TDS zip archive
    - unpack TDS zip without -a flag which was introduced in 2.0.1.
      According to Petra this creates more problems than it solves
    - revive e0020 which checks for unwanted directories in the top level
      directory of a TDS zip archive.
    - new error message e0039: no doc/ top level directory in tds zip archive
    - new error message e0040: too few top level directories in tds zip archive
    - new error message e0041: map file found in path not starting with `fonts/map/dvips`
    - add more test cases
