Hmmm, that's weird, indeed. I don't remember this being discussed with
the respective maintainers.

The Fonts Task Force is a very loose team but we still have an
unwritten policy: being listed in "Maintainer:" with the "real"
maintainer listed in "Uploaders:"....and when this is done, the
package being maintained in "our" SVN.

Of course, our policy to add people to the team is, as a consequence,
very simple: everybody who asks, with a goal, and a dedication to
subscribe to the mailing list is welcomed.

We have no plan but maybe someone in the team is OK to prepare an NMU,
which I'd be happy to sponsor.
