I have been using Linux Libertine (O) for years now, mostly in
XeLaTeX, and am overjoyed that you are packaging the OpenType fonts!
One thought though:

Personally I have not met a need for the Capitals font styles because
it’s available in the main fonts as OT features (and neither have I
really needed the Initials, Keyboard, Outline or Shadow styles). Would
it be possible/preferable to split the more “exotic” fonts in an
-extra or similarly named package? At the moment I’m disabling those
styles with Gnome’s font-manager.

Many thanks for all of your packaging efforts!

Kind regards,
