 Hm, there is no Japanese term in that, but both upstream fonts are mainly
 aimed to use with Japanese (for glyph coverage), right? or MMCedar is
 not limited to such usage?

 It is not necessary for description, put it to README.Debian is enough.

 It seems to be wrong. This font is based on Motoya L Cedar, it has its
 copyright holder. see fonts-motoya-l-cedar.

 I think it would be MIT or BSD-3 is better for future usage because
 we cannot mix other GPL code.


>> *.ttf usr/share/fonts/truetype/fonts-mmcedar/

 u/s/f/t/mmcedar , remove fonts- prefix
