Package: fonts-play
Version: 1.002+20111215.1+ds2-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

fonts-play renders much larger on debian than the original distributed TTF
file from Google.  

I am currently attempting to package a game called 'bitfighter' (it's on
mentors now) and I noticed this when doing playtesting with the game.  I have
two screenshots (will be attached or forthcoming) that shows the font on the
timer in the lower left on debian, compared to what it looks like when using
the TTF from Google on Windows, OSX, and other Linux distros.

Another developer tested it in Debian sid with the same results.
