Debian pkg-gs Project started
Although Masayuki who is Debian Ghostscript maintainer has already created pkg-gs project on alioth, it wasn't organized well for a long time. Current ghostscript quality in Debian is far from good for Etch, and Masayuki is a quite busy person.
Last week, we discussed on IRC and decided to reorganize this project. Therefore we started the mailing list (pkg-gs-devel) and SVN repository. (thanks alioth's admin!)
For first step, I was starting to create gs-esp 8.15.2 package. Here is current status. After fixing some problems (such as crashing with ttf-kochi font), I'd like to upload this.
Our short term goals are:
- Close bugs as possible as we can. :)
- Release "ghostscript" package instead of gs-gpl package.
- Remove Gs-afpl package. Because it was merged into gs-gpl.
I'll be happy and give a beer if someone make CMap DFSG-free...
