Does this mean the WQY fonts are deprecated now and should be replaced
with GNU unifont ? If that's the case you need to start a rename
procedure and modify the comps files of branches unifont will be
pushed to.

If that's not the case, and WQY and GNU Unifont fonts will exist in
parallel from now on, we need to find a packager for GNU unifont. I'd
say the current WQY packager is best placed to take unifont up :p
