 We - Japanese font maintainers - have finished transition from obsolete
 Kochi (東風) fonts to other Japanese fonts. And now, some packages needs
 to be fixed to deal with that. Affected packages that we have already 
 known are below.

  - libpango1.0-common
  - xpdf-japanese
  - gs-cjk-resource
  - xdvik-ja
  - vflib2
  - mgp
  - libkiten1
  - kiten
  - kanjipad
  - kanatest
  - gjiten
  - advi-examples
  - advi

 See http://wiki.debian.org/Fonts/JapanesefontpkgProposal
 We are in 3rd step "Virtual package is approved" (in unstable and testing).

 Those packages need changes (yes "CHANGE" :), such as

 * depends on ttf-japanese-gothic/mincho, not ttf-kochi-gothic/mincho
 * grep hard-corded "kochi" :-), then fix it.

 First of all, dependency fix is needed. So, maintainers, could you fix
 your debian/control file, please? or we'll to sent a bug report and patches
 for them.

 If you have a question, please ask me. Thanks.
