Bug Description

Installing phatch I see that there are additional fonts installed:

Setting up fonts-tlwg-garuda (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-kinnari (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-loma (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-mono (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-norasi (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-purisa (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-sawasdee (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-typewriter (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-typist (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-typo (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-umpush (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-tlwg-waree (1:0.5.1-3) ...
Setting up fonts-thai-tlwg (1:0.5.1-3) ...

I DO NOT WANT THESE FONTS ON MY SYSTEM!

Explanation: I do a LOT of graphix and type setting work and I have a very special selection of fonts on my system and every font too much just clutters all the font select dialogs in the applications I am using. Yes, it is absolutely annoying to have many fonts on a system and to scroll through endless font selection dialog boxes, so I uninstall all the fonts I do not need. This is a lot of annoying and cumbersome work. So I am really upset when some application wants to spill some additional fonts into my system.

BUT this application has dependencies on FONTS - WTF??? Why do you make font files a dependency for an application like this, this makes no sense to me at all. If there is any reason, why there is this dependency, please explain it.

If there is no reason for this ugly and annoying font dependency, then PLEASE REMOVE IT.

Thank you very much for your attention.

YES, of course the strange worlkd in the title should be "unnecessary".

BUT I CAN NOT FIND A WAY TO EDIT THIS BUG.

This is so unbelievable, why are all the ubuntu web sites so unusable? Who did this? I bet the person who had this idea is a sadistic satanist.

"Hey, I have a really evil idea, I will build a bug repopst system where it is NOT possible to edit the bug reports, hehehehe.... people will go crazy about that, harhar... they will enter lots of bug reports with errors in it, because NOBODY LIKES TO REPORT THAT ANNOYING BUG and nobody likes to waste lifetime with such BS, so they will be in a hurry and MAKE LOTS OF ERRORS - and then, after submitting it they will see the errors and then theu GO CRAZY because they can not find any way to edit...harharhar, YES, in fact I am the KING OF EVIL."

This should be an xkcd, really.

Maybe I CAN edit but I just can not find it. Still then the design of this launchpad app is terrible, I assume the person who invented this has a dayjob as a taxi driver or anything not-computer related. taxi drivers are totally cool, I love them, but they should not design important software.
