[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#662673: fonts-cantarell: Font files are installed twice

Package: fonts-cantarell
Version: 0.0.7-1
Severity: normal


the OTF font files are installed twice, once in
/usr/share/fonts/opentype/cantarell and once in /usr/share/fonts/cantarell:

$ dpkg -L fonts-cantarell | grep otf

This happens because the upstream install rule is not overridden in
debian/rules anymore, so it installs the files into $(datadir)/fonts/cantarell
(see otf/Makefile.am) and then the same files are again installed by means of
debian/install - this time into the correct location in
