i wrote, concerning problems with the bluesky type 1 fonts,
(a ridiculous consequence of this is that *i*'m not able to typeset
the metapost logo, so at the moment i'm incapable of actually
producing tugboat here if it requires some of these fonts.)
and thomas esser, quite reasonably asked
Why not just remove the broken .pfb files and replace them by Taco's?
teTeX for example does only distribute Taco's logo fonts, not the other
pfb's. And I don't see why map files are affected at all. Taco's fonts
require exactly the same map file entries as the broken ones.
while we could presumably do that for in-house production, as far
as the distribution is concerned, that's covered by a contract,
so our hands are tied. we're working on it ...
