Hi Christian,
Sorry, you're right. 
To be honest, that was my thought (about being a little bit overkill) but
since the upstream hasn't updated the font "source" in a very long time 
(and probably won't do it) this way seemed to be a better option at the 
moment (probably I was too sleepy to think clear ;-p ).

BTW, I have a few doubts about the method described in packages/README.source,
the steps to follow would be:
$ svn copy trunk/ tag/upstrea_{$version}
$ svn ci -m "Tagging ${version} for ${package}"
$ svn-load -t packages/${package}/tags/upstream_${version} \
svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-fonts packages/${package}/branches/upstream .
$ svn merge \
$ svn diff # (to make sure the diff makes sense)
$ svn commit -m "merge upstream $version for ${package}"

Or am I missing something? In case this is correct, I will do it when I get home 
after work.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.
