Sorry for being unclear again.  It is okay, if lintian warns you by mistake.

However, you renamed your package from ttf-konatu to fonts-konatu,
didn't you?  So _other_ people shipping that font, will get a lintian
warning, that a file they ship is already in a present in a package,
however if they check, that package doesn't exist.  Or am I mistaken
somewhere?  You did rename the binary package, too, didn't you?

Best regards,
