Hi pkg-fonts-devel people,
I want to suggest X Strike Force to delegate xfonts-base to Debian Font
Task Force Team, because it is "fonts" section package (isn't it?).
Why I would tell you to do this, because it seems to have not enough
resource or interest in their team.
For example, http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=423315
This bug leaves 2 years, and 6 months from update request with a patch,
and no reply from maintainers. (there is the patch and pinging to do that, but...)
It is separated from X.Org main components, there are in
There are some resources for font related work in Debian Font Task Force Team,
and some font expert or font lovers in there. And there is no wrong side-effect
for X.Org components itself.
So, I think that's good for both team, and especially for "users".
How about this idea?
Thanks you for reading.
