Package: fonts-droid
Severity: wishlist


I have just read the following in debian/README.Debian:
- Removed all fonts other than the Droid font family (to be packaged

Yes, exact. The other fonts should indeed get packaged separately, i.e. not all
of them, but at least the roboto fonts. If you check out the current git tag
android-4.1.1_r1, there are 10 roboto fonts in data/fonts that we currently
just throw away.

Regarding the README.Debian document itself: Since it describes the way to
create the source tarball, it should get renamed to README.source. And
furthermore, a step-by-step description formulated in plain English is nice,
but to reproduce the creation of the tarball, a few lines of shell that do just
the same would help better.
