Package: fonts-linuxlibertine
Version: 5.3.0-2
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

Checking the upstream FontForge project, the maintainer of the Linux Libertine project seems to have been inactive for two years and unresponsive to contributors:


That's why Khaled Hosny created a fork with many bug fixes and an additional
math font:


I suggest to switch to that fork, which seems more up-to-date and active.
