Package: fonts-ebgaramond-extra
Version: 0.015+git20130628-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Back in November of 2013 I used the EBGaramond12-SC.ttf font in several Libreoffice files.  I opened them up again recently and found that the font had been substituted with some Helvetica variant, and "EB Garamond 12 SC" could not be found.  (I had made some PDF versions at the same time, with embedded fonts, and they still displayed the EB Garamond 12 SC text correctly.)  The EB Garamond 8 SC font still works.

The TTF package files on disk explain this behavior:


There is a EBGaramond08-SC.ttf file, but no EBGaramond12-SC.ttf file.

Did EBGaramond12-SC.ttf get lost during the fonts-ebgaramond/fonts-ebgaramond-extra package split back in June, 2013?  I update my packages irregularly, so at the time I may have still been running fonts-ebgaramond version 0.015+git20130522-1.
