Package: fonts-roboto
Version: 2:0~20151012-1
Severity: important

Dear all,

something is not quite right with the roboto fonts:

Package: fonts-roboto
Version: 2:0~20151012-1
Depends: fonts-roboto-hinted
Recommends: fonts-roboto-unhinted

Package: fonts-roboto-hinted
Version: 2:0~20151012-1
Conflicts: fonts-roboto-unhinted

Package: fonts-roboto-unhinted
Version: 2:0~20151012-1
Conflicts: fonts-roboto-hinted

>From the descriptions and the recommends/depends of fonts-roboto, it
seems that the hinted/unhinted are complementary sets, but they have
conflicts, which is strange.

Furthermore, the description of fonts-roboto-unhinted has a typo:
	This package contain*s* Roboto font families ...
