[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#570067: otf-ipafont: Please consider splitting out to -mincho and -gothic packages

Package: otf-ipafont
Version: 00301-3
Severity: wishlist


I would like to use a smarte Japanese mincho font, so I'm using IPA
Mincho. However, I prefer not to use IPA Gothic.

So I think splitting out this package to -mincho and -gothic enables
(and a metapackage depending on both) users to select a font to use
with their preferences.
