Package: fonts-liberation
Version: 1:1.07.4-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

if the liberation fonts are the only ttf fonts intalled on a system, then
"Liberation Mono" will match any font by default, e.g. in docker
docker run -it debian:testing-slim /bin/bash
# apt-get update
# apt-get install --no-install-recommends fonts-liberation
# apt-get install --no-install-recommends fontconfig
# fc-match sans
LiberationMono-Regular.ttf: "Liberation Mono" "Regular"
# fc-match serif
LiberationMono-Regular.ttf: "Liberation Mono" "Regular"

* What outcome did you expect instead?
an expected behavior will be that "sans" resolves to "Liberation Sans"
and "serif" resolves to "Liberation Serif" by default.

Best regards,
