Agreed to both proposals. After all, I already did the last NMU of
fontforge, IIRC...:-)

So, in about one week, if noone steps in, then we take the package
over. I propose setting the list as maintainer (either the list
itself..which means it would receive bug reports....or a dedicated
list for bugs, with an open posting policy, which is mandatory for bug

Apart from that, this is probably time for us to think about
populating this nice SVN we have.....

I'm actually ready to import there the font packages I maintain
(ttf-lao, ttf-dzongkha). I'll probably also import ttf-freefont but
maybe need some help grabbing the current project SVN of Konstantinos
if I want to keep its history.

(about ttf-freefont, I took it over without asking Kostas because I
know he won't answer mail for a while, being currently in the Greek
army, and I also know he will not bother)
