Package: lintian
Severity: minor
X-Debbugs-CC: pkg-fonts-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org


 Let me clarify changes in recent lintian. Now lintian detect xfonts-*
 package as fonts section package, not section x11.

> W: xfonts-mplus: wrong-section-according-to-package-name xfonts-mplus => fonts

 However, as https://packages.debian.org/en/sid/ says

 "X Window System software
  X servers, libraries, fonts, window managers, terminal emulators and
  many related applications."

 So, section x11 seems to include xfonts, not section fonts.
 Which one is better?
