Package: ttf-dejavu
Version: 2.13-1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

It turns out that original hinting from Vera is somehow broken on the
sans-oblique variant as reported upstream ([1], [2]): this leads to
results which make no justice to the excellent quality of dejavu
(default font for g-i and used by many users). Upstream developers
have provided an ad-hoc patch already which is being thorougly tested
and reviewed: I'll attach it to this BR as soon as it's been tested a
bit longer.
