About La Salle Debain

This is a weblog I'm keeping about my work on Debian and any other useful Debian related info I come across. It is not meant to compete with other news sources like Debian Weekly News or Debian Planet. Mostly it is just a way for me to classify and remember all the random bits of information that I have floating around me. I thought maybe by using a blog it could be of some use to others too. Btw. "I" refers to Jaldhar H. Vyas, Debian developer for over 8 years. If you want to know more about me, my home page is here.

The name? Debain is a very common misspelling of Debian and la salle de bains means bathroom in French.

If you have a comment to make on something you read here, feel free to write to me at

Debian-IN Monsoon Of Code

Know how to use FontForge? If so we need your help with two release critical bugs in ttf-indic-fonts, #427885 and #428023.

What has happened is that for the Latin ranges of some of these fonts, their designers have copied glyphs from proprietary fonts. They need to be replaced with glyphs from free fonts. If you can help, please let me know
