I just took a shot at creating a dd-list for use in a possible
announcement to devel. I produced it with:

wget ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/sid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz
gunzip Packages.gz
grep-dctrl -P -r "^ttf-" --or -P -r "^otf-" ./Packages | \
grep-dctrl -s Package --not -S -r "^fonts-" | \
 cut -d ":" -f 2 | sort | uniq | dd-list -i -u > \

Does that look right? I'd appreciate it if folks could scan the list
and point out any inaccuracies that I didn't catch/consider.

If it looks good, I propose to draft an announcement including this
list and the defoma removal list to be sent to devel. I would send it
to this list for comment first.
