Dear Maintainer,

Since Android upstream stopped shipping Droid fonts and its been
declared that Noto fonts will be superseding the Droid¹² we in
"Debian Fonts Task Force" team decided to drop fonts-droid package.

One of your package performous either
Depends/Recommends/Suggests/Build-Depends on fonts-droid. I kindly
request you to do the switch to fonts-noto instead.

If you are using Fallback variants of Droid fonts, I would like note
that these fonts will still be shipped as part of new
fonts-droid-fallback package.
