[Pkg-fonts-devel] Please let fonts-android migrate to testing

Hello release team,

it seems that src:fonts-android (providing fonts-droid and fonts-roboto)
is currently stuck in unstable. According to Britney this is because
"Adding fonts-android makes 1 non-depending packages uninstallable on
i386: ttf-droid".

This is true, src:fonts-droid which is currently in testing and stable,
provides both ttf-droid and fonts-droid -- the former being a dummy
package pulling in the latter. The fonts-android package in unstable
drops this dummy package, which thus becomes uninstallable. However,
that package is not a loss, since it does not contain any actual fonts
and was part of a transition that was already finished in stable. 

So, please, remove src:fonts-droid from testing and let
src:fonts-android take its place.
