So Alejandros ITP is bogus. I feel free to close it then.

Alejandro (in case you read that in the buglog since your §%&§ mailserver doesn't accept mail):
The libming maintainer (especially when those font packages come
out of the ming source pkg) is the best person to maintain this.
Especially as there's a tool to build those fonts proper.

Ah, yes. That makes the ITP obsolete since*if* this is to be packages it should be
either from libming (which Stuart maintains) or on-the-fly converted from
the font packages it's based on.

But this doesn't answer whether the grave bugs in the fonts was fixed. Alejandro ITPed
0.1 again which supposedly to that removal log has those grave bugs. Or that might be libming
only, I don't know.. But in any case, this were pre-connverted things afaik...

In the meanwhile, you answered on -devel that it's generated during the build from
opens___.ttf (which is the only font there). Please name it -opensymbol.

So Alejandros ITP is bogus. I feel free to close it then.
