Thanks for the interest and kind offer!
The core issue is that Pandoc lacks (non-minified) source for included
Newer upstream release has improvements related to this, but
code is no longer shipped with Pandoc source. Unfortunately some
fetched at runtime which arguably don't pass the "lonely island" test.
As I see it, the proper solution is therefore to a) package all needed
upstream on favoring local code (if available) over online CDN fetching.
Alternatively - but IMO too crude - would be to package the newer
README.Debian note that corresponding output formats are broken.
I believe some of above should be possible to help with even without
understanding to code or the packaging, e.g. discussing this with
upstream author - if he haven't already heard it now, as I think he's
tracking these bugreports :-)
