Hello Petra,

Maybe, we delete the Play font package.

In Future,  i will change the name of the sty file.

I understand this as meaning:

 -> The play-font package should be removed from the
    distributions, for the time being (but not from CTAN!).

 -> In the future, he will submit an update with a new
    name for the .sty file.  (And then the package can
    go back into the distributions.)
