Re: [Pkg-fonts-devel] Fonts from package misbehave in exported PDF

Hello Mirosław, 

Thanks for your mail....and for your confidence in the work done by
packagers, even if it currently is hitting you....

TeX fonts are maintained by the Debian TeX team (CC'ed). You may have
better chances mailing them about this issue.

But, indeed, that issue might as well be related to the overall font
management system. Anyone having hints, here?
