[Bug 1527938] Re: Upstream fonts-droid -> fonts-droid-fallback


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1468027 ***

Sure, I have no objection. OTOH my view on the Chinese font choice isn't
worth much. ;)

Closing this report by marking it as a duplicate of the other bug.

  Upstream fonts-droid -> fonts-droid-fallback

Status in fonts-android package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Upstream has moved the Droid Sans Fallback font from the fonts-droid
  package to a new fonts-droid-fallback package.


  It means that we'll need to change the package name in a bunch of
  seeds, and in pkg_depends.

  This will not be a problem as regards new installs, as far as I can
  tell, but I fear a problem when people upgrade from 14.04 or 15.10 to
  16.04, since there is no dummy package with the old name which depends
  on the new one.

  @Aron: How should we deal with this issue? One way, if Droid Sans
  Fallback will keep being the default Chinese font in 16.04, is to ask
  upstream to create a transitional dummy package.
