[Pkg-fonts-devel] Package naming preference for non-ttf formats (eg. PSF)

I guess you didn't notice, but in Debian we are moving to a new font
package naming policy. We are getting rid of the format-specific
prefix for font packages and going for fonts-[foundry-]fontname, where
the foundry is completely option and should only be used for
disambiguation purposes.

Also, do the tools for building console fonts still exist in Debian? I
thought they were removed long ago and that we can no longer build
such fonts from source.
