Package: fonts-georgewilliams
Version: 20031023-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

After the update of ttf-georgewilliams package from 1.0-5 to 20031023-1, the new packet fonts-georgewilliams is installed.

This package contains a font called Monospace that replaces the default Monospace system font. 


This Monospace is used in consoles or Icedove when no font is specified. 

After removing the package fonts-georgewilliams the font console is back to normal.

You should not use the name Monospace for your font, because it replaces the system font.
