Quoting Sven Joachim (svenjoac at gmx.de):
> Source: fonts-freefont
> Version: 20120503-2
> Severity: serious
> This version of fonts-freefont dropped both the transitional package and
> the Provides for ttf-freefont, claiming in the changelog that there are
> no reverse dependencies.  I don't know where you got this idea - there
> are actually a few dozen reverse dependencies of ttf-freefont (one of
> them is gource which I happen to have installed, that's how I noticed
> the problem).
> Please revert the changes and file bugs against ttf-freefont's reverse
> dependencies.

New version with reintroduced transitional packages is on its way.
