[Pkg-fonts-devel] Common script for conversion of font files

Dear pkg-font team mates,
I have seen that in several of our packages (e.g. ttf-freefonts)
different implementations of fontforge scripts are used to convert
between font formats, e.g. sfd -> ttf. Personally I tend to use the
script found in the Examples section of the fontforge documentation
(the last one before "Other Examples"):
It is possible to convert into .ttf, .otf, .pfb or .svg formats (from
every other format) with this single script and additionally it takes
care of quirks like unit conversion and integer rounding. I'd like to
propose we replace all the sniplets in our packages by this one and
use a common dh rule like
fontforge -script debian/convert.pe --format ".ttf" *.sfd
to build the fonts.
For your convenience, I have attached the script to this email.
