Re: ITP: ttf-linex -- Free fonts for education and institutions

Quoting José L. Redrejo Rodríguez (jredrejo@edu.juntaextremadura.net):

José sent a request to join the group on Alioth which I grantyed yesterday.

Not really. It just means you check out
svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-fonts/packages and look there how
package maintainers have organised their work place (I suggest
ttf-dejavu or ttf-sil-abyssinica as example...

We don't really claim to maintain all font packages. The group is
still quite loose wrt this. We can probably take some packages over in
case they become unmaintained but we still need someone particularly
motivated for this or that package to take care of it.

Here's what we use in ttf-dejavu:

Maintainer: Debian Fonts Task Force <pkg-fonts-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org>
Uploaders: Davide Viti <zinosat@tiscali.it>, Christian Perrier <bubulle@debian.org>, Eugeniy Meshcheryakov <eugen@debian.org>

Here, Davide is the package maintainer. I've been added to Uploaders
as well as Eugen so that we can "safely" upload the package in case of
emergency without it to become an NMU.

This way, bug reports for the package go to the fonts devel mailing
list which has proven fine as of now.

(we did setup a pkg-fonts-bugs mailing list but that seems to be
slightly overkill)
