That is incredibly bad timing, from my perspective.  Wow.

If they aren't on the list, please pass on to them that there is a
present need for this work, and that I would personally be grateful
for it.

The only other route I can imagine is to try to figure out what in the
newer SFD files screws up the release in Debian unstable.  Since
they're only 12 days apart, and no special mention is made in the
FontForge changelog, one wouldn't think it would be a big thing...
But I've already had to do so much detective work like this...  It
certainly isn't my preference.  I don't know...  I'll see.

Please keep me informed.
