Bug#825873: kodi-data depends on font unavailable in jessie/jessie-backports

Package: kodi
Version: 16.1+dfsg1-1~bpo8+1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

When installing kodi from jessie-backports on a my media player running
jessie, I noticed that kodi-data depends on the 'fonts-roboto-hinted'
package, which only exists in sid and stretch at present. 

Thus the current kodi in jessie-backports is not installable. 

I self-backported fonts-roboto and installing that resolved the problem,
so my suggestion is that fonts-roboto should be maintained as a backport
as well. 

Please let me know if you need anything else,
