Quoting Gunnar Hjalmarsson (gunnarhj at ubuntu.com):
> Soon before the April Ubuntu release we figured out a way that seems to
> have made the Urdu users happy. We patched fonts-nafees 1.2-5 by adding
> NafeesNastaleeq.ttf together with a recipe which I attach to this
> message. We did not address the version number issue (not enough time).
> The complete diff is available at
> http://launchpadlibrarian.net/172050192/fonts-nafees_1.2-5_1.2-5ubuntu1.diff.gz
> It would of course be desirable if we could get Ubuntu and Debian back
> in sync. Creating a separate fonts-nafees-nastaleeq package would be
> fine for us, but that recipe (or something else with the same effect)
> seems to be necessary as well.

> Description: Make Nafees Nastaleeq the preferred font for Urdu
> Bug-Ubuntu: https://launchpad.net/bugs/1153188
> Bug-Debian: https://bugs.debian.org/703456
>  That bug is not really a forward of this patch. So far it's rather a
>  discussion with Debian about adding the related .ttf file to begin with.
>  The plan is to sort things out with upstream after the 14.04 release.

Where can the TTF file be downloaded? We should also check if there is
a "source" file of any kind as we now prefer including source files
for fonts when we can.
