I don't think fonts and i18n/l10n should be part of the same service.

The existing service is essentially unmaintained, so zero.
The existing service is ugly and poorly architected though.
Here is what I think needs to happen:
* Plan to start from scratch not just run the existing code somewhere
* Discuss and write down the high-level goals of the service
* Discuss and write down the specific features of the service
* Discuss and write down the proposed architecture of the service
* Discuss and write down the proposed implementation of the service
* Start working on the new codebase
* Talk to tarzeau/aurel32 about the fonts.debian.net domain
* Put the experimental version online at fonts.debian.net
* Find a team to maintain the service into the future
* Talk to DSA about moving it to fonts.debian.org
* Integrate it with other Debian infra like packages.d.o/tracker.d.o
* Keep the wiki page up to date throughout this process:
I won't be participating in shepherding this process nor implementation
but I'm happy to inject some ideas where needed.
For example, the new service could replace this wiki page:
