Some comments at a quick glance:
- your copyright notice as a packager shouldn't be added right after

- the name of the target folder in the install files should correspond
to the name of the package: usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-foo instead of
usr/share/fonts/truetype/foo. A consistency thing with existing
