Thanks for the quick answer, I know you're very busy :-)

It's the Andika font family, and this particular version is Andika Basic 
which replaces the previous Andika Design Reviews.

It's more like a release tag within the wider Andika project.

I initially did an ITP for ttf-sil-andika-basic (and the corresponding 
packaging work in svn) but since this newer version replaces the design 
reviews I thought it would be better to provide an upgrade path and keep 
the same name as the existing package to keep it from going through NEW.

Does that sound good to you?

yes, the upstream orig tarball is constructed from the zip and isn't 
published on the upstream page at this point.
