[Pkg-fonts-devel] (forw) fonts-ipaexfont override disparity

We should take care to ask ftpmasters to change the override when a
package is renamed so that the transition package really stays in
oldlibs and not fonts.

I did that for the last packages I renamed but I suspect that many
others done by Hideki or me haven't had this changed.

That would mean a bunch of bug reports against ftp.debian.org. Maybe
we would avoid that and do one single bug report for all of them?

Any volunteer for collecting all ttf-* transition packages that are
still in "Section:fonts"?

Subject: [Pkg-fonts-devel] fonts-ipaexfont override disparity
X-CRM114-Status: Good  ( pR: 19.5177 )

There are disparities between your recently accepted upload and the
override file for the following file(s):

otf-ipaexfont-gothic_00103-7_all.deb: package says section is oldlibs, override says fonts.
otf-ipaexfont-mincho_00103-7_all.deb: package says section is oldlibs, override says fonts.
otf-ipaexfont_00103-7_all.deb: package says section is oldlibs, override says fonts.

Please note that a list of new sections were recently added to the
archive: cli-mono, database, debug, fonts, gnu-r, gnustep, haskell,
httpd, java, kernel, lisp, localization, ocaml, php, ruby, vcs, video,
xfce, zope.  At this time a script was used to reclassify packages into
these sections.  If this is the case, please only reply to this email if
the new section is inappropriate, otherwise please update your package
at the next upload.

Either the package or the override file is incorrect.  If you think
the override is correct and the package wrong please fix the package
so that this disparity is fixed in the next upload.  If you feel the
override is incorrect then please file a bug against ftp.debian.org and
explain why. Please INCLUDE the list of packages as seen above, or we
won't be able to deal with your request due to missing information.

Please make sure that the subject of the bug you file follows the
following format:

Subject: override: BINARY1:section/priority, [...], BINARYX:section/priority

Include the justification for the change in the body of the mail please.

[NB: this is an automatically generated mail; if you already filed a bug
and have not received a response yet, please ignore this mail.  Your bug
needs to be processed by a human and will be in due course, but until
then the installer will send these automated mails; sorry.]
