I think, indeed, that there should be no Suggests...

It's quite some time since I'm prodding the debian-in folks to move
ttf-indic-fonts under pkg-fonts....and probably align the packaging
style with what we have for other fonts....:-)

Anyway. What's needed is basically add a debian/<package>.installl
file to have dh_install automagically cope with this:

        dh_install -pfonts-johnsmith-induni ./IndUni-C/*.otf \
        dh_install -pfonts-johnsmith-induni ./IndUni-H/*.otf \
        dh_install -pfonts-johnsmith-induni ./IndUni-N/*.otf \
        dh_install -pfonts-johnsmith-induni ./IndUni-P/*.otf \
        dh_install -pfonts-johnsmith-induni ./IndUni-T/*.otf \

And then, change debian/rules to just:

#!/usr/bin/make -f
        dh $@

See examples in pkg-fonts SVN...(I just validated your request to join
the team). Are you subscribed to the mailing list?
