W file-in-discouraged-x11-font-directory

All reports of file-in-discouraged-x11-font-directory for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

For historical reasons, use of PEX, CID, Speedo, and cyrillic subdirectories of /usr/share/fonts/X11 are permitted, but installation of files into these directories is discouraged. Support for the first three font types is deprecated or no longer available, and Cyrillic fonts should use the normal font directories where possible.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 11.8.5 (Packages providing fonts) for details.
