NP, thanks for doing the merging :)

buxy installed libfont-ttf-perl and lcdf-typetools already. Since
there isn't an etch fontforge backport yet, I didn't ask him to
install fontforge. I just asked him to install freetype2-demos and
I'll re-enable the ftvalid thing when that is done.

I also changed the group and permissions so that anyone in pkg-fonts
should be able to svn up in the web directory, or the debfontreview
directory on alioth:

links to the web dir above

When the current run is done, I'll move
/var/lib/gforge/chroot/home/users/pabs/debfontreview/ into
/srv/alioth.debian.org/chroot/home/groups/pkg-fonts/ to make that more
