Hi, Fabian.

I'm indeed working on upstream FontForge.

The current plan is not to include a static debian directory in the source
root (as has happened in the past) so as to make things easier for others
packaging the product differently. I'm adding a deb-src make target that
generates the debian control directory and runs debuild.
