Package: lintian
X-debbugs-cc: pkg-fonts-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org


 lintian shows duplicate-font-file warning.

>>W duplicate-font-file
>>usr/share/fonts/truetype/alee/Bandal.ttf also in ttf-alee
>>usr/share/fonts/truetype/alee/Bangwool.ttf also in ttf-alee
>>usr/share/fonts/truetype/alee/Eunjin.ttf also in ttf-alee
>>usr/share/fonts/truetype/alee/EunjinNakseo.ttf also in ttf-alee
>>usr/share/fonts/truetype/alee/Guseul.ttf also in ttf-alee

 However, ttf-alee is already dummy transitional package.

 data/files/fonts says

# The list of known font filenames already packaged for Debian and the
# package that contains the font.  Only packages starting with ttf-,
# otf-, t1-, xfonts- and fonts- are searched for fonts.
# Last updated: 2014-10-01

 It's too old... please exec private/refresh-fonts-data for each release
 to not cause false-positive, at least.
