Package: fonts-ipafont-gothic,fonts-ipafont-mincho
Version: 00303-7
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package failed to install. As
per definition of the release team this makes the package too buggy for
a release, thus the severity.

>From the attached log (scroll to the bottom...):

  Selecting previously unselected package fonts-ipafont-gothic.
  (Reading database ... 6862 files and directories currently installed.)
  Unpacking fonts-ipafont-gothic (from .../fonts-ipafont-gothic_00303-7_all.deb) ...
  Setting up fonts-ipafont-gothic (00303-7) ...
  update-alternatives: using /usr/share/fonts/opentype/ipafont-gothic/ipag.ttf to provide /usr/share/fonts/truetype/fonts-japanese-gothic.ttf (fonts-japanese-gothic.ttf) in auto mode.
  update-alternatives: error: error creating symbolic link `/usr/share/fonts/truetype/fonts-japanese-gothic.ttf.dpkg-tmp': No such file or directory
  dpkg: error processing fonts-ipafont-gothic (--configure):
   subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2

You must ship /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ as an empty directory.
Please don't mkdir/rmdir manually in the maintainer script
