Your package ships depends on or uses defoma. defoma is in the process
of being removed from Debian:


If you have any questions about this transition, please contact the
Debian Fonts Task Force on our mailing list. We are also interested in
new people if you want to help us maintain, check and discuss fonts.

pkg-fonts-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org

To help us complete the transition from defoma to fontconfig, please
remove any use or mention of defoma or x-ttcidfont-conf from your
package. Here are some things that you might want to check:

Remove any mentions of defoma, defoma-doc, psfontmgr or x-ttcidfont-conf
from your debian/control file and documentation.

If you are running dh_installdefoma in your deblian/rules file, simply
remove that call.

Remove any defoma use from your maintainer scripts and remove any defoma
related files on upgrade.

If you were shipping a defoma backend then on upgrade from a version
before the one that dropped you need to run `defoma-app purge $PACKAGE`,
but only if the defoma-app binary is available and executable. If
defoma-app is not available then you could remove the relevant directory
in /var/lib/defoma/.
