Hmmm... Is that still up-to-date? It talks about source packages being named 
fonts-foo while binary packages being named {ttf,otf}-foo.

Either way it is not exactly discover-able. As the rest of the document isn't 
completed, would there be any objections if I were to excerpt the naming section 
on the wiki somewhere? Say: http://wiki.debian.org/Fonts/NamingPolicy
