Hi,

Is this really necessary to have in Intrepid?

Thanks,

James thanks for your time

I'm not sure, this is why I opened the bug!

I don't feel like I have enough experience *yet* to make such a judgment call. Could you please advise further?

Hi,

This is the fix that was applied

+ * Drop dependency on freetype1 by disabling the support for inserting
+ timestamp text in the images (Closes: #432195). With this change the
+ need for fonts is reomved and thus it drop the suggests on
+ msttcorefonts (Closes: #490033).

It was RC because Debian don't want to release with freetype1, how
does Ubuntu feel about it?

Check to see what else depends on freetype1, if it's nothing then we
probably want this to remove the package. If it's lots of things then
it's too late to be doing this, so we might as well not bother with this
package. If it's just a couple of packages in Universe we can decide
whether to transition now or later.

Thanks,

James

The source package freetype1 creates these binaries: freetype1-tools, libttf-dev and libttf2

freetype1-tools rdepends
- ttf2tex
- libttf2
- latex-hangul-ucs
- latex-cjk-common

libttf-dev rdepends
- vflib3-dev

libttf2 rdepends
- xgdvi
- w3cam
- vgrabbj
- vflib3-bin
- vflib3
- vflib2-misc
- vflib2
- vflib2
- tex-guy
- spawx11
- spawg
- pike7.6-image
- libttf-dev
- libimager-perl
- libft-perl
- freetype1-tools
- dvi2ps

Yea I think this transition should probably wait till jaunty

Thank for your help James

Hi,

I am going to close this bug, as I agree with you. The autosyncer will
pick up this package, so having the bug open is just extra work.

Thanks,

James
