You need to take care of purging defoma's cache and also cleanly
remove the hints file. See atatched preinst script.

> b) Source format: Is there anything I have to do?

1) Add debian/source/format as attached.
2) Drop any dependency on quilt if you were using it (very unlikely
for fonts)

This is not yet standardized..:-)

This is not yet standardized but ttf-<foundry>-<fontname> seems to be
a better choice when <foundry> is clear to identify.
