Exactly. And I'll even be clearer. Packaging ALL fonts is NOT the
objective of this group. As we perfectly know we will never enforce
this on some of the current maintainers (and we won't even try) and
given that some font packages maintainers do not feel the need to join
the group....and are actually doing good job, I personnally don't want
us to say more than "we are a group of volunteers who package some of
the fonts used in Debian".

Quite loose definition, but that's how one gets accepted in Debian,
IMHO..we have to respect the work done by others.

Here, we have a package that seems abandoned. I suggest you first
contact the QA team and check with them if adopting the package is OK
