> Package: fontforge

> In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to prevent a crash when reading optimized png files.
> Ubuntu routinely runs optipng on installed png files, and that revealed a bug in fontforge's built-in png reader code.  This probably isn't super important for Debian, as you don't run optipng, but it appears to be a real bug and would let us get in sync again if it was applied.
> I've also forwarded this patch to the fontforge mailing list.
> Thanks for considering the patch.

Thanks for forwarding this...and thanks for reporting upstream too
(which will save me time doing so..:-)
