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.
