[Pkg-fonts-devel] "Bits from the Fonts packaging team" at DebConf 11

As briefly discussed quite some time ago, I submitted a talk for
DebConf11 (July 24-31, Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina) with "Bits
from the fonts packaging team".

So, in order to avoid turning it into "Bits from Bubulle about fonts",
I'd like to elaborate the talk's content in this mailing list with you

I usually start working on my talks by throwing out ideas more or
lessa randomly in the wild. Somemay turn into a few slides, someonly
in 1 or 2 words on a slide.

So, in order to start this work, here is what I can come to, in about
10 minutes thinking randomly about what I'd like to say. Of course,
many things are probably missing...or are  just full crap...or

So, let's turn this into something usable..:-). I start collecting
your suggestions, then we'll try to order this into something
structured and, then, we'll be left with slides writing and "who gives
the talk" decision..:)

My random ideas:

Team  coverage
- fonts
- tools

- introduce OFL
- talks about vague, imprecise licenses

VCS use

Team members
- DDs, DMs, others

Packaging design
- source v3
- dh7 minimal rules
- font packaging policy

Migrations underway
- defoma drop
- source v3+dh7 minimal
- package renaming

- ttf/otf source packages (count of binary)
- bitmapped font source packages
