In Ubuntu I applied the attached patch in order to silence fontconfig warnings:

Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/65-droid-sans-fonts.conf", line 103: Having multiple values in <test> isn't supported and may not works as expected
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/65-droid-sans-fonts.conf", line 138: Having multiple values in <test> isn't supported and may not works as expected

These won't hit Debian yet, hence the wishlist status. Fontconfig added the warnings
in 2.10:


Though there's a pretty good argument that the severity should be higher as multiple
values in <test> isn't supported even if there isn't a warning.

I'm a member of pkg-fonts, so I can commit this myself if there is no objection.  

  * debian/local/65-droid-sans-fonts.conf: (LP: #1034928)
   - Update so that there are not multiple values within
     test tags as Fontconfig warns that this is not supported.

Thanks for considering the patch.
