Terminus-font is shipped with optional patches which modify some letters. AUR contains packages of terminus-font with some of these patches enabled, but having additional packages for different patchsets seems redundant. I suggest to include all available patches in the community package, and allow user to select desired patches by (un)commenting few lines in PKGBUILD.

I attach suggested patch. By default it enables patches which most cyrillic users will find appropriate (IMO) - ij1, ge1, dv1. Of course if there will be disagreements about defaults, it may be changed.

This will also fix  FS#20680 .
This task depends upon

It should also be arch=('any') since it is a font.

BTW since i just flagged it out of date, i would like to also note that the license is OFL not GPL, and there is also a .conf file in 4.32 which i suppose it is meant to go to some font directory in /etc but dont know if it is needed and when. Sadly no ChangeLog.

Since the package was updated, here I provide suggested patch for version 4.32-1 which does the same as previous one.
