Thanks Christian and Paul for your feedback.  I was told the best
route to get this package in Ubuntu would be to have it included in

I'll fix all of this and upload the fixed package to
mentors.debian.net.  I guess I'll jo'-in the pkg-fonts team Christian.
 I think Nicolas did suggest that, I joined the Ubuntu fonts team not
the Debian team.  I am subscribed to the list.

I'm not sure about how upstream edits the fonts.  I'll have to ask
upstream about this.  I renamed the fonts for looks. The original
names had spaces in them so i replaced them with '-' and lowercased
the letters.  When I do the upload I'll use the newer versions and
keep the names as is.

As far as making two different packages for Sans and Serif.  I think
I'll work on just keeping it as one package.

As far as the package name "aboriginal", it is the name of the font
Aboriginal Sans and Aboriginal Serif.  I know it means different
things in different places, but I think the name should stick with the
font package and have a better description to make things clear that
it is  specific to North American Indigenous Languages.
