I pointed out the problems I saw in the initial thread about this RFS.
Please check the debian-mentors archives.

Not in non-free, not on mentors.debian.net, nowhere. Basically, IIRC,
the license requires prominent notice in every file when changes are
made to the fonts[1] stating at least the date and author of the
changes. This clause of the license was not respected in the last
package I reviewed. This must be fixed upstream. Upstream is alive,
Debian-aware and friendly (hi, Ralf!)[2], so this should be doable.

  [1] Well, the license was not developed with fonts in mind, as it

  [2] Walter Schmidt's cooperation is also probably needed for a new
      release, but I don't think it's a problem either.
