well then, let's see. ;)

 * The Vcs-* fields are meant to point to the packaging repository, 
   not the upstream repository. Please move the upstream homepage from 
   the Vcs-Browser field to the Source field in debian/copyright.

 * Your upstream sources do not contain any documentation of the 
   copyright and License. This is very bad, please convince your 
   upstream of including such a file.
   Alternatively, there are chances that these information are 
   embedded into the font files and can be extracted, see e.g.


   Anyway, please document where you got the idea for the Copyright 
   and License fields from . ;)
 * As mentioned before, the Source field should point to the website 
   where you have downloaded the sources, e.g. the Releases page on 
 * The blank line before the License paragraph breaks parsing of this 
   file. Please do either remove this line or duplicate it right below 
   the Copyright line.
 * There is no Copyright/License information given for debian/*. 
   Please  chose a simple license such as e.g.


 * Not needed, please remove.

 * Empty, please remove.

 * Not needed, please remove.

 * Only lines 1, 21 and 22 are needed, please remove the others.

 * Missing, please consider adding this file.

So, that's it so far for my review.
