First I thought of naming it fonts-arkpandora but then I thought to
have upstream name source package and binary is named as per our team
naming policy. I was also planning to prpose this change to our naming
policy but didn't get enough time.

What do you think of -

1. Source package named in same way as upstream
2. Only binary package will be named to have fonts- prefix

I prefer cdbs over dh and I see this as personal preference can you
please leave it to have CDBS?

>> - Why use control.in -> control?

More explanation here [1] [2] Of course there is not much  dependency
management but I just have this same structure across most of my CDBS
packages. So I intend to leave it as it is.

>> - Why Build-Depends on dh-buildinfo, devscripts?

devscripts because cdbs uses a copyright check feature which I'm not
utilizing here so I will override this dependency also dh-buildinfo
might not be necessary for this package as its simply installing ttf
file (not building it from source). I will disable this too from rules

Indeed a typ thanks for noticing

Uh oh I always mess things up here thanks for noticing.

I'm okay with last 2 changes but not the changes related to CDBS I
will fix this myself. Also if you see having same name as upstream
name for source package I'm okay with your changes.

Sorry for late reply as I was travelling and was not having internet connection.

Thanks and Regards
