I just grabbed the upstream tarball and will try to create an early
package following our "not written yet" package policy (in short, I'll
be using cdbs+quilt just like Adnène and I are already doing on the
various font packages we maintain).

Would you guys (the pkg-fonts team) have a problem for the package to
be officially team-maintained, ie have the mailing list in the
Maintainer: field?

That could be one very first part of that "yet to be written"
packaging policy for the font packages that we maintain in the
pkg-fonts team:

Font packages are maintained by the team (the team address is listed
in the package's "Maintainer" field) with real physical persons listed
as "responsible" for that package by being mentioned in the
"Uplaoders" field. The list of persons responsible for a
team-maintained package should at least contain one official Debian
