Re: Fwd: [Debian-in-workers] Removal of fonts-knda-extra from archive

Hi Vincent,

I just don't understand why you want to fork the stuff again. Can you
see my point 2?

fonts-gubbi or Gubbi is fork of Kedage with all modern improvements
works fine with harfbuzz and has been selected to be included into

fonts-navilu is also fork of Mallige with all modern improvement works
fine with harfbuzz.

Do you have any technical points in mind against Gubbi and Navilu to
recommend second fork?
