[Bug 958345] Re: ttf-indic-fonts packages are outdated should be removed


> Santhosh - you should uninstall ttf-indic-fonts-core and install the
fonts-* packages instead.

Yeah, that is what we are asking - please remove it from ubuntu
installer so that the users get correct fonts.  After installing Ubuntu,
people get fonts from ttf-indic-fonts-core package. Those fonts are
outdated  - in fact many years old. Asking every user of Ubuntu to
uninstall that package and install fonts-* package is not the solution I
expect here.

Either update ttf-indic-fonts-core package to latest version or use new
package in ubuntu installer.

  ttf-indic-fonts packages are outdated should be removed

Status in libreoffice package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in ttf-indic-fonts package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The Debian fonts team recently restructured the indic fonts. ttf-indic-fonts changed to fonts-indic. This is meta package and all packages ttf-[language]-fonts renamed to fonts-[script/foundry]. In addition to this all fonts were updated to latest versions from upstreams. 
  I request ubuntu maintainers to update the fonts to latest versions and consider following the debian package naming changes for fonts.
