  1. hm... I'm (obviously) no DD, so I cannot neither upload nor give definite answers. That said, some remarks:
    
    The fonts are problematic from many aspects. They seem (as usual) not to be covered by the overall license. For this and other reasons it might be a good idea to make a separate font package. See: https://wiki.debian.org/Fonts/PackagingPolicy and the related debian-fonts mailing list
    
    Skimming through your packages on mentors here seems to be a lot lintian warnings which should be simpler to fix than to discuss. The other warnings (besides X:) here falls IMHO in this category. Please feel free to ask if you want after checking the meaning of the lintian error, using links above.

  2. oops. You have separate font packages, sorry. You should still IMHO discuss them  with the fonts community to sort out the licensing. And, as lintian says, fins are arch:all

  3. i already am in the #debian-fonts (team and irc channel), if you're on #debian-mentors i'm there as well (tarzeau)

  4. It's fine you are there. IMHO, you should seek advice there on to handle these fonts, in particular the lintian warnings which might be the tip of the iceberg. On Fedora, which I happen to know better,  it certainly is.
    
    And, as I said, you you be better off fixing the other warnings.

  5. Thanks for the comment.
    
    Actually I was working on it:
    12:13 < tarzeau> https://lintian.debian.org/tags/opentype-font-prohibits-installable-embedding.html
    12:13 < tarzeau> comparing the documentation at ms.com https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/typography/opentype/spec/os2#fstype to the mainly SIL OFL 1.1
    12:14 < tarzeau> that binary fonts clearly could be patched to not trigger the warning, maybe the build system has a flag to override the setting during build?
    12:14 < tarzeau> ah for .glyphs it's probably easier https://forum.glyphsapp.com/t/embed-flags-fstype/7045 just sed it
    12:16 < tarzeau> https://fontforge.org/docs/faq.html has something about FSType
    12:20 < tarzeau> fontmake generates .ufo with fontinfo.plist openTypeOS2Type with int=3: https://github.com/silnrsi/pysilfont/issues/52
    12:23 < tarzeau> medicalwei_: any suggestion where to fix this lintian thing?
    12:25 < medicalwei_> Uhm... ask upstream about whether this is intended despite their license terms
    12:26 < medicalwei_> tarzeau: which font?
    12:43 < tarzeau> https://lintian.debian.org/tags/opentype-font-prohibits-installable-embedding.html all of these :)
    12:43 < tarzeau> https://github.com/googlefonts/fontmake/blob/4008348dbeb13bf720d70383d92f58a35b9eebbb/Lib/fontmake/instantiator.py
    12:43 < tarzeau> i think it's not in there but in the part ufo2otf somewhere in one of the libs, no idea really
    12:44 < tarzeau> pretty sure it's not intended, but a bug in one of the building tools, but then i'm not sure either here
    12:46 < tarzeau> https://mentors.debian.net/package/fonts-elstob/ and https://mentors.debian.net/package/fonts-joscelyn/ sean whitton safe (ftp-master of debian, dropped all images, pdfs)
    
    fixed the other lintian warnings however won't build anymore, there recently was some qt updates, so will check when it builds again

  6. Yes, you can override the lintian warnings, and you should IMHO do it  referring to the link above . See https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/dother.en.html#lintian and perhaps examples in my opencpn package

  1. OK, it's an update. My remarks was partly out of context, thought it was a new package. Sorry.
    
    Still thinks my remarks are valid, though.

  2. no worries, i agree, i never claimed the opposite, and thanks for your review(s)
