Agreed. However, the pkg-fonts policy might be harder to follow here,
as ttf-indic-fonts is a collection of many fonts from many different
Indeed, the current "policy" of the Fonts packaging team is well
adapted to simple packages where one source package provides only one
binary package for fonts (eventually two, if one includes the udeb
needed by D-I for seom packages).
In the case of ttf-indic-fonts, the source package could be renamed as
fonts-indic....and discussion should happen for the various binary
packages it provides, particularly those that provide fonts from
various origins. Even so, would it make sense to keep the script name
in the fonts package name...that's an interesting thing to discuss.
