Package: ttf-dejavu
Version: 2.19-1
Severity: normal

ttf-dejavu includes a set of great fonts, but looks like a particular
group is set incorrectly: Serif*Oblique
The font name is actually Serif*Italic

DejaVuSerif-BoldOblique.ttf -> /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSerif-BoldOblique.ttf
DejaVuSerifCondensed-BoldOblique.ttf -> /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSerifCondensed-BoldOblique.ttf
DejaVuSerifCondensed-Oblique.ttf -> /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSerifCondensed-Oblique.ttf
DejaVuSerif-Oblique.ttf -> /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSerif-Oblique.ttf

But this links are wrong because the font is not named Oblique, the name is Italic
DejaVuSerif-BoldOblique.ttf -> DejaVuSerif-BoldItalic.ttf
DejaVuSerifCondensed-BoldOblique.ttf -> DejaVuSerifCondensed-BoldItalic.ttf
DejaVuSerif-BoldOblique.ttf -> DejaVuSerif-BoldItalic.ttf
DejaVuSerif-Oblique.ttf -> DejaVuSerif-Italic.ttf

Same happends on /var/lib/defoma/fontconfig.d/D
* DejaVu-Serif-Bold-Oblique.ttf
* DejaVu-Serif-Condensed-Bold-Oblique.ttf
* DejaVu-Serif-Condensed-Oblique.ttf
* DejaVu-Serif-Oblique.ttf

Also the /etc/defoma/hints/ttf-dejavu.hints is wrong.

Thanks for packing this great fonts !
