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.
