Thank you for your nice work.

This was copyright problem, and Since Maehara got success to contact
the copyright holder, and to make assure the license is free, so
watanabe-vfont will be soon uploaded again.

edict is one of JP Packages, and will be uploaded. The delay is mainly
caused by the delay in registering the key of the maintainer, Nakahara,
who got account on master several weeks (or months ?) before.
If his key will not be registered, then we will do Source NMU for him
before the freeze day comes.

These will soon be resolved as well as vflib2.
