In general, I'd say "no". Except, maybe, for some heavily used packages
like fonts-freefont-* which have many reverse-dependencies, which in
turn rely on hard-coded paths to certain font files and are dependent
on them being in one specific format or the other. I doubt, though,
that this is the case for ttf-radisnoir. However, please check its
reverse-dependencies, if any.
Furthermore, the package name being prefixed with "ttf-" is very
misleading for his package. In general, please adapt packages to the
team's usual schema of prefixing packages with "fonts-". This does also
apply to the femkeklaver package that I just reviewed some minutes ago,
sorry for this oversight:
Please turn ttf-* packages into transitional package depending on the
fonts-* pendants and providing symlinks to the fonts' previous

I am still not convinced by debian/.gitignore, but this is merely a
personal preference. Apart from this, it looks fine. However, please
note that I am not going to upload any more font packages starting with
