Package: fonts-cantarell
Version: 0.0.21-1
Followup-For: Bug #822762

As far as I know gnome uses the cantarell font as default. However some
characters have zero width (e.g. "ü"), which leads to a non-readable gnome
interface/popups/etc with the default font.

There is a new version of fonts-cantarell available, would it be possible to
package it, as the new version should fix this issue.
