Thanks for your report and interest in Fontforge Debian package.

That has however to wait after the release of wheezy. The freeze
policy prevents us to upload a new upstream version to unstable.  ATM,
the main problem to solve with FF is the RC bug about non-Free files.

The only solution ATM is uploading to experimental (after creating a
branch for that in pkg-fotns git)...but this is likely to be low
priority as most members of the fontspackaging teamare focused on
other issues as of now.

Of course, if this is something you're interested in, you're very
welcome to  work on this. We're mostly missing someone really
dedicated to FF, which is more in maintenance mode as of now.

That's a good suggestion which I support, yes.
