Subject: fontforge-extras: includes showttf, also in package fontforge
Justification: renders package unusable
Trying to install fontforge-extras in testing,
it includes executable /usr/bin/showttf.
But this is already installed by package fontforge,
which results in an installation error.
Note that package open-font-design-toolkit
depends on both fontforge and fontforge-extras,
so co-existance of these packages is assumed (and obvious).
I can see a future version of the fontforge package
not including showttf (the one sitting in unstable),
but right now there is none available in testing.
Therefore, dependencies and conflicts should be appropriately defined.
