Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org at packages.debian.org
Usertags: pu


ttf-ipafont does not correctly handle the alternatives:
* ttf-ipafont-{gothic,mincho}.postinst registers them
* ttf-ipafont.prerm unregisters them
(that it probably an oversight when the package was split)

This leads to the following errors if ttf-ipafont is installed, removed
and installed again:

0m16.5s ERROR: FAIL: After purging files have disappeared:
  /etc/alternatives/ttf-japanese-gothic.ttf -> /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ipafont/ipag.ttf	 not owned
  /etc/alternatives/ttf-japanese-mincho.ttf -> /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ipafont/ipam.ttf	 not owned
  /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-japanese-gothic.ttf -> /etc/alternatives/ttf-japanese-gothic.ttf	 not owned
  /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-japanese-mincho.ttf -> /etc/alternatives/ttf-japanese-mincho.ttf	 not owned

And I actually had forgotten to file a bug about this until a few minutes
ago :-)

The attached patch fixes this by moving the unregistration to the
respective prerm while keeping all the ancient cleanup code in the
ttf-ipafont package.
