TY Christian for the time that you spent on my package.

I sent a correction, as follow...

1) Lintian
    My understanding of English let me looking these sentences as Chinese.
    I modified version and description.
 2) /usr/share/fonts/opentype/pecita: yes, true, done.
 3) build-stamp: If you say! I suppressed it and hope the package is
still instalable???
 4) I give the source on http://pecita.eu/f/Pecita.sfd but there is no
connotation with the package.

I hope it suits you: "je suis au taquet'. Do not ask me anything more :§
