Sorry for coming back on this so late.
I'm balanced when it comes at the package name. First of all, I think
that the source package should be renamed too. The, I'd rather go for
"fonts-libertine". I see nothing "Linux" specific in these fonts, so
even if upstream calls the fonts this way (which is not clear as they
speak about the "Libertine Open Fonts Project"), I think we'd rather
avoid "linux" in the package name.
Before I commit the relevant changes, do you have any comments about this?
