Well, I did a search on Debian, and I didn't find any .woff files, so I 
will assume that the answer for my question is no.

Well, I decided to let the source package name match to that of the 
upstream (ie. amiri), hence the source package name is the same as the 
directory name in SVN.

As for the foundry name In your first reply to my email, you said:

So when you said "using author's first name" yet you used the name 
'hosny', I guessed that you may have thought that his first name was 
Hosny. Anyways, I have fixed that now on SVN.
