[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#827045: fonts-fantasque-sans: (mono) broken right quotes (single and double)

Package: fonts-fantasque-sans
Version: 1.7.1~dfsg-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

Thanks for packaging this font! I used it in my terminal for a long
time until this bug bothered me enough to switch.

There seems to be a bug with the closing "smart" quote symbols in
Fantasque Sans _Mono_. I mean the last character on the following
two lines:

	“double curlies”
	‘single curlies’

ie U+201d and U+2019

For me, in st (suckless terminal) and inkscape, the closing quotes
appear a full character to the left of where they should, as though
they were accents on the "s" characters.

This has been reported upstream (for the single quote only) here:

Apparently this issue bug does not happen if the font is built with
a sufficiently new version of FontForge. (According to the bug link
above.) They don't specify how new, but they don't like the 2012
version that's in debian now.
