I had a short look over the files that you have uploaded into the 
pkg-fonts SVN recently (thank you very much!) and would like to 
suggest the following changes:

- There is no need to depend on a version of cdbs that isn't even in 
oldstable anymore.
- Maybe you should drop the indefinite article "a" from the short 
- Is the font created "only using" FOSS tools or "using only" FOSS 
tools? ;)

- The first line is really unnecessary (but this is very minor).

- This file still points to "/path/to/Rufscript010.ttf"!

- This may be renamed to README.source, because it simply describes 
how to generate the source tarball. BTW, the package would fully 
comply to Policy 3.8.0 then (I believe).
- Please break lines after 80 characters.

My personal opnion is, that it is "cleaner" to package the sourceforge 
source file (sfd) into the orig.tar.gz and create the ttf at 
build-time. However, this can wait until upstream has created a 
"proper" source tarball.

Thanks again and happy hacking!
