The fix of <https://bugs.debian.org/853848> wasn't accomplished properly. Renamings of conf files weren't addressed in maintainer scripts, upgrades from previous versions fail in this respect, and the package system generates warning messages.
The problem has been reported in Debian, and the purpose of this bug
report is to keep track of the progress.
This config file is broken in xenial and will still be broken on upgrade to bionic, which means the fonts in question will not be available to the system as intended if the user has upgraded.
For each of
* Purge the package if installed and clean up possible leftovers
due to the issue.
* Install the Xenial version of the package and find that the symlink
in /etc/fonts/conf.d incorrectly points to a directory.
* Install the version in bionic-release and find that the attempt
to fix the issue fails
* Install the version in bionic-proposed and find that it fixes the
issue and that the symlink now correctly points to the conf file.
Because this modifies maintainer scripts there is possibility of introducing a regression that will cause the package to fail to unpack.
