I'll look at it soonish.

For actual sponsoring I'll wait for one or two more successful
submissions by you, as the fonts packaging process has been streamlined
so much a single submission is not really selective nowadays.

Thank you for noticing *and reporting* this. Should be fixed now (BTW
anyone declared in FAS is free and encouraged to fix and improve the SIG
wiki pages, only the official guidelines are locked)

Try to always use the files in the form provided upstream with their
exact link in Source: . The only exceptions are archives that include
stuff we can not distribute, even in an srpm, or archives that need a
non-free unpacker. In those cases we do re-create source archives but
it's and exception mode that should be avoided as much as possible.
