Hi Christian,

Yes, this is what I intended to do but for some reason my local
repository was locked halfway though the svn mv. It allowed me to remove
the older folder but wouldn't add the new one. No svn cleanup or revert
would unblock the situation...

Sorry for the trouble, not sure was happened, I use and maintain svn
services and had never seen this in a mv before. :(

Anyway, I'm continuing the work on font packaging.
Still got to pick up some discussion threads but as you've probably
noticed my free time for this is way too limited.

Btw, there was good discussion on open fonts at the last LGM in
Montréal. With Dave Crossland from OFLB and fontly.com we gave a
presentation on font freedom. We also organized a font BoF there with
the people from projects like fontconfig, fontforge, Scribus, OFLB, W3C.

The slideware is available here:

A few links about the conference here:

I'm preparing a detailed report on this for the team.

See you at the debconf,

Nicolas Spalinger
