I'm no longer the maintainer of ttf-khmeros and the SVN repo is not in
sync with the archive:


Unfortunately Soputtra San (aka kenno) doesn't seem to be taking care
of the package as I had expected.

Kenno, could you fix the bugs that I filed or forward them upstream
and sync the packaging in the archive with the pkg-fonts SVN
repository? If you'd like the team to help, please change the
maintainer/uploader fields as suggested above.

BTW, any ideas about the status of KhmerOS upstream? They don't seem
to have fixed any of the bugs I filed on their sf.net project. Perhaps
some of them will come to Thailand for the Debian camp and I can find
out there:


Are you coming to that BTW?

I'd suggest moving to a minimal dh rules.tiny style rules file too.

This shouldn't be needed with dpkg-source v3?

Upstream source is .ttf files last I checked, which isn't that useful
to check in to SVN.

These sound good.

Switching away from defoma could also be a good idea.
