Bug Description

"ubuntu-desktop" package's dependency suggest ttf-unfonts-core as Korean fonts.
But at 2008, new free Korean font, Nanum came with OFL license(free license).
And, Nanum family fonts are having much better quility than Un family's.
As the result, Mac OS 10.7(codename Lion) and ChromeOS decide to include Nanum fonts.
So, I strongly suggest to use ttf-nanum instead of ttf-unfonts-core.

Actually it's not a problem.
Just add ':' at commit message(LP #836430 -> LP: #836430) :)

Thanks for your patch! I can't merge this right now because it is IMO too late in the Oneiric release cycle to be changing the default set of installed packages in any significant way. However, I can offer some advice on getting this merged for the P cycle.

 * ttf-nanum is in universe, and will need to be promoted to main in order to be installed by default. I've created a task against that package. Please see for what needs to be done next.
 * This is not how we maintain ubuntu-meta. The files you're patching are actually generated automatically, and you need to edit the source for them instead, which is: lp:~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/ubuntu.oneiric
 * I suggest having a brief conversation on <email address hidden> about this, in order to give other Korean speakers an opportunity to give feedback.

I'm unsubscribing ubuntu-sponsors for the time being based on the above feedback, but this is not a rejection; please do resubscribe us at the start of the P cycle when you've done the above. Thanks again!

Oh, I didn't know about MIR.
Now I open LP: #846353(whether it can be go in Oneiric or not).
Colin, thank you for your advice!
