this font is highly specialized and unlikely to be used by any other package.
lintian says I must split off a font package.
I: maitreya: font-in-non-font-package
N: This package contains a *.ttf, *.otf, or *.pfb file, file extensions
N: used by TrueType, OpenType, or Type 1 fonts, but the package does not
N: appear to be a dedicated font package. Dedicated font package names
N: should begin with ttf-, otf-, or t1-, depending on the types of fonts
N: included. (Type 1 fonts are also allowed in packages starting with
N: xfonts-.) If the font is already packaged, you should depend on that
N: package instead. Otherwise, normally the font should be packaged
N: separately, since fonts are usually useful outside of the package
that N: embeds them.
N: Severity: wishlist, Certainty: possible
debian policy 11.8.5 seems to say the same thing. But I does not say anything
about what the font package must be named. Where is that comming from?
In any case, if I must split out a font package, how do I do it? Are there any
examples out there?
