Package: fonts-firacode
Version: 1.203-1
Severity: serious
Tags: upstream
Justification: Policy 2.1

Thank you for determining the absence of the source form for this
work; I see the comment in ‘debian/copyright’ added for this package
version, informing the reader the package in Debian does not have the
source form of the work.

Packages in Debian must be distributed with their entire corresponding
source form [0], so this package should not be in Debian. Because
building the work depends on other works that cannot be in Debian,
this package may be in the “contrib” archive section.
