[Bug 958345] Re: ttf-indic-fonts packages are outdated should be removed


I can confirm that 15.10 does indeed come with ttf-indic-fonts.

The fonts  provided on Ubuntu 15.10 by default provides a suboptimal
user experience for someone dealing with Indic content. These are VERY
old fonts, and it is gross injustice to not include newer versions. The
fix suggested seems simple enough, and I have no idea why this is taking
years to be completed.

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.
