Package: texlive-latex-recommended
Version: 2007-13

Dear Dominique, dear Herbert, dear TeX Live team,

(Herbert:) thanks for the bug report, I have created a image of it in
the Debian Bug Database.

(TeX Live Team:) all for your information

(Dominique:) We got the following bug report which relates to the ucs
package. It seems that the mentioned sung bitmap font is not available,
while the arphic fonts are widely available and packaged for at least
Debian and Ubuntu (and for sure for many others, too).

Do you see any other problems with the approach taken below?

Would it be possible to include this in a new release of ucs?

(For Debian/Ubuntu:) I guess if we get a positive answer I will patch
this into the current TeX Live packages. Hopefully it will be fixed
upstream, too.

Thanks a lot and all the best in the new year
