Oh thats why I didn't find them, in the list. Then I thought it might be
in already included fonts so marked closes for the bug. I will fix that.

Uh 419M? Thats just too huge!. Probably better to make them separate
package? and make fonts-noto depends on it? or suggest it so we don't
end up pulling everything to user machine who don't want CJK.

Cool. Well pkg-fonts lacks active DD's so you might need to wait in the mean
time I've mirrored package on alioth[1] can you access it from there?

Just let me know when you have pushed so I can sync it across to actual repo.
