Some comments for the package from here:


      * Switching package names requires that you add dummy packages for
        people upgrading from stable/oldstable to a new stable or
        testing/sid. I suggest not changing the package name unless it
        is necessary.
      * I don't think fontforge, fontforge-doc, fonttools need to be in
        the suggests line.
      * The OFL file doesn't need to be installed
      * If they work the reportbug scripts suggested by Nicolas are
        useful please add them. 
      * Gentium-RU-Specimen.pdf is non-free and-or needs licence
        clarification, the main thing is that it says "All other
        portions of this booklet are ©2002 J. Victor Gaultney. All
        rights reserved."  I'm also concerned about "Texts from Le
        Nouveau Testament en Lyélé du Burkina Faso, ©2001 by Wycliffe
        Bible Translators, used by permission; Holy Bible: New
        International Version, ©1978 by the New York International Bible
        Society, used by permission; B.F. Westcott and F.J.A. Hort,
        eds., The Greek New Testament (1881)." Also the Universal
        Declaration of Human Rights also doesn't have any
        copyright/licence information (at least the English version) :)
        There is also no source code for Gentium-RU-Specimen.pdf and the
        other PDFs. Nicolas, please check with SIL what the
        copyright/licence/source code status of the PDFs are. There is
        the possibility of just preparing a dfsg-compliant version of
        the orig.tar.gz and adding a script used to generate it to the
        diff.gz, but I'd rather SIL fix this properly.
