Hello Jaldhar,

I had made the deb manually, i just read the 'APT Howto - Working with source packages', so i will
now go back and make them properly by packaging them first in: nepalifonts.orig.tar.gz,
nepalifonts.diff.gz and nepalifonts.dsc.  I will also make sure they are DFSG compliant, or try my
best to free them.
