Well, strictly speaking WOFF fonts are not package documentation so I'd
reject a package that has these fonts moved there. This is just a
workaround for a shortcoming in the fontconfig package that we have yet to
fix (see my previous mail). As I stated before, I'd prefer if we could
simply not package WOFF fonts until we have sorted out this issue on the
fontconfig side.

BTW, does anyone have bug numbers about packaged WOFF fonts causing
problems that I could refer to when preparing the fontconfig NMU?
