Dear mentors,

  Section         : utils

The source builds the following binary package:
    dvipng - convert DVI files to PNG graphics

Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

    dget -x https://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/d/dvipng/dvipng_1.15-1.1.dsc

More information about dvipng can be obtained from http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/dvipng/.

  * debian/patches/freetype2_pkg-config.patch:

      in FreeType 2.9.1 or later (Closes: #887606).
  * debian/patches/spelling.patch:
    - Fix spelling errors identified by Lintian.
