Bug Description

The latest version of Symbola is 12.00, from http://users.teilar.gr/~g1951d/. The version in this package is missing many important symbols from newer versions of Unicode, such as U+2BEA (half-filled star), that are in the newer version.

Thanks for pointing that out, Lenin. That means that this bug cannot be fixed as the package cannot be updated to a newer version unless the license becomes free once more. As such, should be marked "Won't Fix".

Erich, I can't do so since Ubuntu says: "Won't Fix
Doesn't fit with the project plans, sorry."

So?

It's not just "non-free". The new license is so restrictive that we can't even distribute the new font versions in a non-free section of our archives.
