RFS[2]: ttf-dejavu -- bistream vera derivate with additional characters


I'm still seeking a sponsor for my package. I screwed up some things in the

Updated package info:

Package        : ttf-dejavu
Version        : 1.5
Licence        : Bitstream Vera Fonts Copyright
Upstream Author: Stepan Roh <src@srnet.cz>

The fonts are based on the Vera family, but they also cover quite a lot of 
chars needed by the non-English folks. Currently there is support for Czech, 
Slovak, Welsh, Polish and Romanian languages and languages using Cyrillic 
characters. There is also a screenshot showing some of the new chars:
