Package: freevo
Version: 1.8.1-0
Severity: wishlist


The package 'msttcorefonts', which your package Suggests, has changed
name. It is now called ttf-mscorefonts-installer, to be in line with
other TrueType font packages in Debian. Also, recently the
ttf-liberation package has entered Debian. This is a package containing
free variants of the Arial, Courier and Times New Roman fonts. This is
obviously a better alternative to users since it's in main and doesn't
require a separate download.

Please do one of the following:

1) If your package only needs Arial, Courier or Times New Roman, change
   the Suggests to:
   ttf-liberation | ttf-mscorefonts-installer

2) If the suggests is specifically about non-{Arial,Courier,Times)
   fonts, change it to:
