Leading? And it's the first time Alexandre and I (and I would guess
lots of others) have heard of it. How do you expect users on older
OS's to unpack it? Or do you just not want them to see the font? Why
not have a .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 as well as this new format? If it is
going to be packaged for Debian/Ubuntu it will need to be repacked
I see that most of the other files in that directory are .bz2 so I
can't see that being a problem.
Aside from that, good work on the fonts :)
