Dear bubulle,

I have just discovered that ttf-tuffy_20071106-2 in current sid and 
squeeze contains a debian/patches/debian-changes-20071106-2 that 
erroneously reverts the actual 
debian/patches/01-spurious-langnames.patch. I don't know how this 
could stay uncovered for such a long time after the upload of this 
revision (nearly one year), but I do not use this font myself and just 
found it out. the error slipped in during the 1.1 upstream release and 
nearly renders the font unusable, i.e. the italic and regular flavours 
cannot be distinguished from each other.

I am directly contacting you, since you did the conversion to "3.0 
(quilt)" source format and uploaded the package and I am CC'ing the 
whole team in case this has also happened to other (patched) font 
packages as well.

Please consider re-uploading this package ASAP without this bogus 
patch, this is clearly targetted at the release.

  - Fabian
