Bug#776449: ITP: 3270font -- monospaced font based on IBM 3270 terminals

Package: wnpp

  Description     : monospaced font based on IBM 3270 terminals

 This font is derived from the x3270 font, which, in turn, was translated
 from the one in Georgia Tech's 3270tool, which was itself hand-copied
 from a 3270 terminal.
 .
 While looking reasonably close to its bitmap ancestors, this is a vector
 font that looks good at any size.  Its recommended use is, obviously, a
 text terminal, same as nearly half a century ago.

There's a bitmap version in the archive already: (xfonts-x3270-misc,
non-free), although PCF fonts are not configured by default for use with any
toolkits from this millenium.  Ricardo Bánffy's version is free, works with
modern technology, and has a number of improvements.

The conversion from bitmap used an eight-direction algorithm rather than the
usual squares, fitting the font's design (lots of diagonals).  There's also
a number of manual tweaks after that.

This package is a dependency of cool-retro-term, although a terminal font

I'm not sure - sorry. I have noticed, however, that you forgot to CC the
bug. I've just done that now, so hopefully someone else will know.

Suggestion for the installer, when non-free firmwares are needed

Dear Debian developers,

I just installed Debian 8 (testing) on a PC of mine with the graphical installer and the setup ran really
smooth - with one exception: It was a big hassle to find and download the unfree firmware for my Wifi
adapter, which I needed for the installation.

Here’s a suggestion: Let the installer display a code, which the user can enter on debian.org - it then
automatically shows you the needed files and let you download them instead of mentioning cryptic file
names like rtl8168e-3.fw and so on.

Best greetings from Berlin & Thanks,

Stephan

Bug#776222: general: Software management should be only one tool in the GUI

Package: general
Severity: normal
Tags: lfs

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I installed a fresh Debian with GNOME.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     ineffective)?

I want to install new packages and update the existing ones.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

I went to the Applications > System Tools menu. There I found three tools that
have to do with software installation:

* GDebi
* Software Updates
* Add/Remove Software

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

I expected to find a single tool for managing the installed software. I think
GDebi would fit nicely into the menu of Add/Remove Software, as System >
Install individual package.
