Package: grace
Severity: wishlist
Usertags: defoma-removal

Your package contains a defoma backend. defoma is un-maintained and
Debian-specific so I would like to remove it from Debian.

Please migrate your package to use the cross-distribution font
configuration and discovery software, fontconfig. Your options for
fontconfig support in order of decreasing preference are:

      * Get upstream to link against libfontconfig for looking up fonts
      * Get upstream to use the fc-* binaries to retrieve the data they
        need from fontconfig=20
      * Use the fc-* binaries from your maintainer scripts (preferably
        via dpkg triggers) to generate the same data or configuration
        that the defoma backend produced=20
      * Drop the defoma backend and leave users to manually configure
        fonts for this package

More information about fontconfig and querying it from applications is
available at the upstream homepage:


Please be sure to change your maintainer scripts so that they remove the
files created by your defoma backend when upgrading to the new version.
You can do this with the following command:

/usr/bin/defoma-app purge <package>
