Have you added your PGP public key to mentors? Just to confirm did you
follow the steps given here [1]

Also Please file an ITP[2] bug for your package in debian bugzilla and
also note for Wheezy we have new packaging policy where all font
package name begins with *fonts-* . Naming convention is *fonts-name*
where name is the font name so I think its better to rename your
package now.
