That url location does not seem to have the packages anymore.

Debian does have plenty of fonts, doesn't it. While sure it would be
great if those fonts are open-sourced, if not maybe you can talk to
the upstream about using some of the open-source fonts.

Possibly, you already have done that.

Right. I did see Jon Downland's message on the mailing list archive
about first talking of doing a review and then retiring, both of which
are understandable. See
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-games/2011/11/msg00024.html and
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-games/2011/11/msg00019.html . You
might probably have to hunt around for some sponsor to review your
package and see if its good.

Looking forward to answers on the same.
