Note that this information is by no means Debian-specific.  We should
submit this change upstream.

Apropos "we": As a sidenote in a thread on -devel, it turned out that
our current choice of letting lmodern be orphaned and subscribing the
list to its bugs is suboptimal, since people are considering some
auto-cleanup of testing from orphaned packages with bugs (even with
non-RC bugs).  So I'm retitling the bug to RFA (request for adoption)
and make it visible also in the lmodern package's bug page, and we're
going to do a takeover-upload somewhen in the future

I object to that - if there *is* an upstream documentation, duplicating
this in README.Debian is superfluous (and even harmful, because it
distracts people from the cases where README.Debian in fact has
important Debian-specific information).
