Hi Brett, Please join the Debian-IN workers mailing list
<email@example.com> 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.
