[Pkg-fonts-devel] [Philippe Cochy] Re: New FontForge in Debian ?

--- Begin Message ---

I am sorry for not being clear. I subscribe to the list
https://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-fonts-devel and I
get the mail "[Pkg-fonts-devel] fontforge pending issues and uploading
to experimental". The package font-pecita is involved because it is
FTBS. I am asked to clarify the cause to help in assigning the bug to
fonts-pecita or fontforge. I replied that the bug is in FontForge and
its scope is much larger: it is a malfunction of ExpandStroke. I do not
want to act as a troll and I request you to communicate with the
developers on this subject. Please reply to the persons in CC, not to
myself, I act as intermediary.
