This RC bug from 2014 reports packaging problems with configuration
files.  In 2015, ChangZhuo Chen uploaded a new version with suffix
"rc1-1" having the changelog entry "Fix wrong configuration file."
See the changelog entry excerpted below:

Did that upload fix this bug, and the bug just wasn't marked as closed?

There is also a FTBFS bug for this package (#808850).  I posted a
patch that is a workaround for the FTBFS problem.

These are the only two RC bugs for xfonts-wqy.

Right now, xfonts-wqy is marked for removal from testing on January
14th because of these two RC bugs.  I just noticed this a little over
a day ago.

Popcon reports over 1000 installations of this package.  Can the
Debian Fonts Task Force please prepare a new upload to prevent this
package from being removed from testing?

Thank you,

Paul Hardy
