Dear mentors and pkg-fontsers,

I am looking for a sponsor for my updated package "googlefontdirectory-tools".

 * Package name    : googlefontdirectory-tools
   Version         : 20120111.1-1
   Upstream Authors: Dave Crossland
                   : Khaled Hosny
 * URL             : http://code.google.com/p/googlefontdirectory/source/browse/tools/
 * License         : Apache-2.0 & CC0
   Section         : fonts

Binary package: googlefontdirectory-tools - various tools for generating, analysing and manipulating font files

 googlefontdirectory-tools (20120309.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release
     - New otf2sfd script
     - New merge script
   * Source taken from mercurial revision 2275:af364e7c88e3
   * Set all python scripts as executable
   * Standards-Version 3.9.3
     - Set final DEP-5 Format: link
   * Add 'fonttools' dependency for setnonhinting-fonttools.py script
   * Use xz compression for source tarball


* On lintian <= 1.5.6 this package has a bunch of
E: * missing-dep-for-interpreter fontforge => fontforge
Because it depends on "fontforge-nox | fontforge" and -nox wasn't added
as a valid interpreter for ff scripts in lintian before (#661363).

P: googlefontdirectory-tools: no-upstream-changelog
Yeah... No setup for existance outside the gfd VCS in this regard.

The package is available at mentors:

  dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/g/googlefontdirectory-tools/googlefontdirectory-tools_20120309.1-1.dsc

Alternatively the source is kept in git at:

  git clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-fonts/googlefontdirectory-tools.git
(using a standard pristine-tar import-orig layout)

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
