looking at the full list, 5 bugs per mail don't seem like much. On the other
hand, if you had listed more then 5 I might not've looked through the list at
all and had not spotted fontconfig in it.

fontconfig also has a second RC bug: #909750

The last maintainer upload of fontconfig was more than two years ago. Since
then it has been NMU-ed by me and Julien Cristau.

Since there is no maintainer action on #960679 I wanted to ask the d-devel
crowd if you see any problem with making fontconfig-config arch:any to fix it?

There is a patch for #909750 which I can apply in my next fontconfig NMU as


cheers, josch
