Visibility: info

This package contains a *.ttf, *.otf, or *.pfb file, file extensions used by TrueType, OpenType, or Type 1 fonts, but the package does not appear to be a dedicated font package. Dedicated font package names should begin with fonts-. (Type 1 fonts are also allowed in packages starting with xfonts-.) If the font is already packaged, you should depend on that package instead. Otherwise, normally the font should be packaged separately, since fonts are usually useful outside of the package that embeds them.
