Since the freeze is very close you may not make it.

Retitle the RFP bug to ITP and set yourself as the owner to indicate
that you are working on it

Take a look at one of the pkg-fonts packages that build-depends on
fontforge to find out how to build the font from source and how to
package fonts in general. Please note that for new packages you do not
need any of the defoma stuff that you might see in some of the font

I note that the font is listed as GPL licensed, I'd recommend asking
upstream to add the standard GPL font exception to the license:


Then get someone from pkg-fonts or DebianEdu to review the package and
upload it.

Wait for the ftpmasters to accept the package.

Wait 10 days for the package to transition to testing/squeeze. Do not
make any uploads during this period or you reset the 10 days counter.
