  [pkg] package should be renamed according to new Debian Fonts Policy

Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:

  I just downloaded the font package and I noticed that its name is
  passé: we are now adopting the conventions from here (written by yours


  In symmary: it should begin with `fonts`, followed by a hyphen,
  followed by the name of the font (lowercased, spaces substituted with
  hyphens etc.), without the need of "family" in its name. For instance,
  `fonts-ubuntu` would be fine. `fonts-ubuntu-maag` is also fine.

  If you plan on releasing fonts in multiple formats, then putting the
  format as part of the name is OK.
