[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug #502707

On Sun, 19 Oct 2008 a mass bug filling was done on a number of font
packages. [1] None of them seem to be maintained in the pkg-fonts svn,
but five of the six (ttf-atarismall, ttf-goudybookletter, ttf-okolaks,
ttf-radisnoir, ttf-tiresias) have the Debian Fonts Task Force listed
in the uploaders field. (The sixth is ttf-beteckna.)

I was wondering if the team has a plan to deal with this issue as it
is an RC bug. The fix is simple, the packages need to depend on
defoma. Should the maintainers be contacted be for doing a NMU? No one
has responded to the bug report yet.

I would be happy to upload fixed packages to mentors if that would be
helpful. Although it's such a small fix that wouldn't take all that
much more time for someone with upload rights to simply do them.

ttf-goudybookletter also has another bug which could be fixed with the
same upload. [2]

Let me know what you think.
