I have a couple of questions about how to change the package name of a
font to respect the team name policy.
Feel free to point me to a link if it's already explained somewhere!
The package I'm working with it's gw-fonts-ttf: this source package
provide the binary ttf-georgewilliams which provides this fonts:
According to , it should be renamed as fonts-<name> or
I guess in this case it should be fonts-georgewilliams.
1. Do I have to rename only the source package? Or also the binary? And
in this case: how do I do it, and what is the suggested name?
2. Changing the name of the package means, if I'm not wrong, to also
create a dummy package with the old name in order to provide a gentle
transition. Is it ok to follow "Method 2" in this page  or is a
preferred method to do it with fonts?
3. Do I have to change also the repository name? And if so, how do I do
Ok, I think that's all about names :)
Thanks again for your patience, I'm learning a lot from your replies!
