[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#668889: fonts-cmu: Please provide OpenType font instead of TrueType

Package: fonts-cmu
Version: 0.7.0-2
Severity: normal

As upstream also provides a cm-unicode-0.7.0-otf.tar.xz package, please use
that for the Debian package instead of the ttf one, as OpenType has somewhat
superior features compared to TrueType.

(Changing this should be rather straightforward, basically replacing occurences
of ttf -> otf and truetype -> opentype in most debian/* files)
