So, I have checked other font packages in my deb-src,
and found some others with similar problem:
Although the experimental version (4.1-8) was uploaded
with Vcs-* fields changed to git 9 months ago, the unstable
version (4.1-6) still points to SVN, and fails debcheckout.
Uploading the experimental version to unstable should fix this.
But note a typo in Vcs-Browser field:
A 'p' is missing between '?' and '='. That is, it should be:
This one doesn't fail debcheckout, but it gets the packaging from
SVN, which is in sync with unstable. So, it might not be a problem.
However, another copy has been found under git, with newer
upstream version imported. And the Vcs-* fields have not been
changed to git yet. Probably, the maintainer is just waiting for
something before putting it to unstable.
