Bug Description

New version of ttf-unfonts-core, ttf-unfonts-extra is released.
Name changed to fonts-unfonts-core, fonts-unfonts-extra and ttf-unfonts-core, ttf-unfonts-extra become metapackages.
Metapackage ttf-unfonts is no more exists.
Source package is divided form ttf-unfonts to fonts-unfonts-core, fonts-unfonts-extra.

Actually I want to request sync, but it's impossible because version number is higher than Debian.
So I just change changelog and control from source at Debian.

Indeed Debian now also has a -core and -extra package, but it seems they split it differently. Their fonts-unfonts-core is 19.5 MB and ships a lot of fonts (http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/fonts-unfonts-core/filelist). Our ttf-unfonts-core only ships UnBatang and UnDotum, plus their bold variants, making the package "only" 7.5 MB.

So the merges need to be re-done to split fonts-unfonts-core even more, or move the other fonts to fonts-unfonts-extra (but that would require repacking the original tarballs).

Martin Pitt,

It's true fonts-unfonts-core has more font files than ttf-unfonts-core.
But is there are any reason that we should keep that *-unfonts-core ship only UnDotum and UnBatang?
I want to make the changes from Debian as small as possible.

Thanks for your reply.

Additionally, unfonts does not ship with iso file anymore and most Koreans install these pacakges together.
Also, if fonts-unfonts-core ships only 2 fonts, fonts-unfonts-extra become too huge.

Indeed, so that's fine for sponsoring after all. Need to run in a bit, can't do it right now.

Both uploaded, thanks! I'll adjust the seeds accordingly, and remove the old ttf-unfonts-* source packages.
