ttf-freefont (20090104-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release (Closes: #509858)
* Fix wrong upstream URLs
- debian/watch
- debian/control
- debian/copyright
* debian/control: fix lintian warning about missing ${misc:Depends}
in binary entries
* debian/scripts/FreeSans-strip: strip more ranges from the udeb:
- Alphabetic Presentation Forms (uFB00:uFB4F)
- Phoenician (u10900:u1091F)
* Perform glyph stripping on the sfd files rather than on the ttf like we
do on ttf-dejavu: seems much cleaner and avoids problems with Indic
scripts which got rendered badly (probably because of a Fontforge bug)
* debian/patches/: remove empty directory to fix lintian warning
