thank you for your interest in packaging the Ansuz OCR-* fonts for

My suggestion is to package both fonts in a way that they are co-
installable with the current "fonts-ocr-a" package. Although the latter
is not without its flaws, it at least provides some bold, condensed and
italic flavours. We should really keep it functional.

My suggestion is to call the new packages "fonts-ansuz-ocr-a" and
"fonts-ansuz-ocr-b", respectively, to distinguish it from the current
one. If you need any help, feel free to ask the pkg-fonts-devel at lists.a
lioth.debian.org mailing list.
