Package: ttf-dejavu
Version: 2.31-1
Severity: normal

After the latest upgrade (which, I admit, was long overdue), the dejavu
fonts are no longer available as core X fonts. xlsfonts does not see them,
which is not a surprise since the necessary files are absent from

I tried reinstalling all the relevant (to my knowledge) packages to force
regenerating the missing files, but to no avail. The packages reinstalled
were libttf2 fontconfig fontconfig-config '?name(dejavu)' x-ttcidfont-conf 

I guess this has something to do with defoma being phased out, but I would
really like to have dejavu fonts still.
