[Bug 1979493] Re: fc-match maps font "mitramono" wrong under fonts-beng-extra package


The name of Mitra was changed to Mintramono to avoid confusion with a proprietory Nastaliq font call mitra. The mon suffix was added to indicate it is a monospaced font.

  fc-match maps font "mitramono" wrong under fonts-beng-extra package

Status in fonts-beng-extra package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I was initially using : 
  fonts-beng-extra/impish,impish,now 1.0-7 version and moved to using 
  fonts-beng-extra/jammy,jammy,now 3.2.1-1 

  I see the difference for my concerned font is as below: 
  +* Converted mitra.ttf(0.70) to mitramono.ttf(0.80)

  What is expected?
   --> With the older mitra.ttf present in fonts-beng-extra:1.0-7, the output was: 
  $ fc-match mitra
  MitraMono.ttf: "Mitra" "Regular"

  $ fc-match mitramono
  mitra.ttf: "Mitra Mono" "Regular"

  What happened instead?
  --> However with the mitramono.ttf present in fonts-beng-extra:3.2.1-1, I see : 
  $fc-match mitra
  MitraMono.ttf: "Mitra" "Regular"

  $ fc-match mitramono
  DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book" 

  Not sure if this mapping is intentional?
