Dear maintainers,

The open-font-design-toolkit package is now uninstallable in unstable
because it depends on python-fontforge, a python2 module which has been
removed from the latest version of fontforge and is now only available in
unstable as an uninstallable cruft package:

$ sudo apt install open-font-design-toolkit 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 open-font-design-toolkit : Depends: python-fontforge but it is not going to be installed
                            Depends: xgridfit but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I don't know why this package was overlooked in the general mass bug filing
for python2 removals, but your package is currently unreleasable due to this
