Re: Bug#696385: RFS: astromenace/1.3.1+ds-1 [ITP] -- hardcore 3D space shooter with spaceship upgrade possibilities

Hi Paul,

I saw a lot of your messages related to fonts in Debian, also there was one
or few posts in your blog (I do not remember precisely). So it looks that
your well versed in this matter.

Could you comment our discussion about astromenace-data package? Quotation:

Have you any thoughts on this issue? Is it good idea to ask <pkg-fonts-devel>
mailing list to clarify this theme?
