[Bug 1727291] Re: fonts-droid-fallback is missing "Provides: fonts-droid"
Thanks for your report!
Hmm.. It would be a bit late for this kind of change in Xenial, wouldn't
it? I added a Debian bug from March 2016 with a similar request
(transitional package), but that bug hasn't been fixed.
Which packages and scripts *depending* on fonts-droid do you have in
mind? (Can't help to think that they should have been changed by now...)

fonts-droid-fallback is missing "Provides: fonts-droid"
Status in fonts-android package in Ubuntu:
Status in fonts-android package in Debian:
16.04 LTS has renamed package "fonts-droid" as "fonts-droid-fallback" and the new package Breaks the old package. However, the new package is missing "Provides: fonts-droid" which would allow
existing scripts and 3rd party packages with dependency to "fonts-droid" to continue working.
Unless there's some reason not to include "Provides: fonts-droid" I
would request adding it.
