Yep, I'm still very interested :-)
<insert lack of time/RL factor cliché>
I'm currently working on various open fonts coming through the pipeline.
(Doing some work on open fonts for the OLPC too.)

The current source packages are on

To make it more convenient I'll put them up on mentors.debian.net soon.
Looking forward to your thoughts and testing of the current packaging.

The sooner we can get these fonts in the archive the better, but we need
