IPA Fonts are JIS X 0213:2004 compliant OpenType fonts based on TrueType
outlines provided by Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan
(IPA) from 2003.  These are suitable for both display and printing.
This package provides Gothic (san-serif) style fonts.  IPA Gothic Font
is the equal-width font.  IPA P Gothic Font is the propotional font.
In the equal-width font, the fullwidth characters (most CJK characters)
occupy exactly twice as much width of the halfwidth characters (normal
alphabets and numbers).

fonts-ipafont (00303-10.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* otf-ipafont-*.preinst: Unregister the ttf-japanese-*.ttf alternatives.
* fonts-ipafont-*.preinst: Clean up the ttf-japanese-*.ttf alternatives set
up by otf-ipafont-* in squeeze. This needs to be done in fonts-ipafont-*
as well since there is no guarantee that the transitional otf-ipafont-*
packages were installed and did clean this up. Since new installations of
fonts-ipafont-* cannot be distinguished from "upgrades" from otf-ipafont-*
this needs to be run on new installations, too.  (Closes: #700341)
