[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#551507: ttf-dzongkha: Hints point to Jomolhari.ttf, not Jomolhari-alpha3c-0605331.ttf

Package: ttf-dzongkha
Version: 0.3-1
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

/etc/defoma/hints/ttf-dzongka.hints tells the rest of Debian to
look for the installed font in the file Jomolhari.ttf, but it is
actually installed in a file named Jomolhari-alpha3c-0605331.ttf .

Because Debian packages are supposed to believe defoma when
looking for fonts, policy compliant packages will not be able to
use the package at all until this is fixed.

I have attached a simplistic patch for the broken hints file.

Please remember to keep the hints file up to date whenever you
change file names or paths of the installed fonts!
