Could you reconsider the naming of the font?
The current practice for packages providinf TrueType and/or OpenType
fonts is naming them ttf-<foundry>-<font>. The "ttf-" prefix is very
widely used while the <foundry>-<font> is not as widely used....
Some people proposed we use a "font-" or "fonts-" prefix (used in
Fedora) to avoid naming "ttf-foo" something that provides OTF fonts.
We could probably start with your package as it is obviously intended
for wheezy and not squeeze.
That would lead to something like "font-hosny-amiri" by using the
upstream author's first name as "foundry" name.
