Upstream fonts-droid -> fonts-droid-fallback
Status in fonts-android package in Ubuntu:
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.
