What means this exclamatory mark?

Yes, they are almost private to FontForge (Mensis uses these libs too).
Thank you for this remark. I will try to move them to /usr/lib/fontforge
on the next release (if I will be able to).

This is, what left after previous maintainer. If I were a maintainer, of
these packages from the first beginning, I would do more separate source
packages. One source package (libuninameslist) I have already separated from
FontForge source package. But the current FontForge source package in debian
is concluded from 4 separate upstream archives an one .c file:

I don't like this, but because I am not DD, I have not enough will and
determination to change this situation.

Best wishes,
