Package: ttf-gentium
Version: 1.02-2
Severity: important
Tags: l10n

You have been unresponsive to change requests for months, even years. I
tried to point out the problems via email, by sending patches and a
debdiff and have been diplomatic but to no avail. You have had more than
enough time to react. You have been focusing on other packages instead
of fixing problems in this one.

If you are unable or unwilling to maintain the package as part of the
pkg-fonts team, please orphan the package ASAP.

This is an important package which needs maintaining especially with
the upcoming release of a new version. There have been difficulties
with Debian derivatives like Ubuntu directly syncing from your
unmaintained package.
