It covers the Latin and IPA sections of Unicode 3.0, and most of the Greek (including Polytonic Greek) and Cyrillic sections. So, the choice becomes: - keep this font listed in (some of) these tasks. Then it needs to be maintained by - someone willing to do so - the pkg-fonts-devel "team" - remove this font from all tasks and then either: - drop the package - keep it is someone volunteers to maintain it IMHO, even if I did not check this, the ttf-dejavu font(s) cover these languages pretty well. So, the font is maybe not very much relevant for being installed by default. On the other hand, the package has few bugs (4) and should be very easy to maintain. Upstream seems inactive (no release since 2000-2001).
