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.
