[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#551508: ttf-inconsolata: Hints file points to Inconsolata.ttf not Inconsolata.otf

Package: ttf-inconsolata
Version: 001.009-1
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

/etc/defoma/hints/ttf-inconsolata.hints tells the rest of Debian
to look for the installed font in Inconsolata.ttf, but it is
actually installed in Inconsolata.otf.

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.
