(quick reply as I contributed to the packaging of these fonts before
Faidon kindly offer to take care of them).
Thank you for processing the package and for the feedback.
It's rather hard to provide good font specimens in another format. And
these particular set of pdf specimens have been made with Indesign,
which means having that kind of source file is not very useful for
Debian. If we had png files as specimen would we need to provide some
sort of source too?
Otherwise we'll simply drop the pdf from the packages and point to the
upstream website where people can get them directly.
What do others in the pkg-fonts team think?
We can fix the description-related bug.
