Hi Brett, Please join the Debian-IN workers mailing list
<debian-in-workers@lists.alioth.debian.org> and the debian-in project on
Alioth.  This aims to be a central place to coordinate Indic language
development in Debian.

I would be happy to sponsor your package but there are two things.

1.  I don't see the source package on your site.  This is a must if you
want to get your package uploaded as I will have to rebuild it locally.

2. Are you sure the fonts are DFSG compliant?  I believe I may have looked
at them at some point and noticed some restriction but I don't remember
now.  If not, work with MPP to get them freed if at all possible.
