Uhm, ok.  I see how this is confusing: What upstream calls a project is 
not the same as what we call a project.

We have source packages "fonts-noto" and "fonts-noto-cjk", because 
upstream chose to develop those in separate git repositories with 
independent release cycles.  Similarly, what upsteam calls "Noto Emoji" 
would in Debian context be a separate source package called 
"fonts-noto-emoji" because it is released independently from "Noto".

Hope that helps.
