Hi Johannes,

    -some packages depend on themselves, is it worth if i provide a list to 
    remove these deps?

I'm happy to see the list, at least. It may be a result of some
dependency (semi-)auto-generation.

    -package amsfonts has some spaces here "execute addMap      euler.map", 
    should be "one" space.

It doesn't hurt to have multiple spaces. It's just to make the .tlpsrc
file prettier. No change needed.

    -pmxchords.ARCH consists of a single link, pointing to pmxchords.lua, no 
    binary involved at all. Is it against some policy that this link isn't 
    in package pmxchords?

No, this is normal. The .ARCH subpackages are present when a package
installs anything in the bin/ARCH/ subdirs. Whether it installs a
binary, script, or symlink is immaterial.
