Subject: dpkg-cross: check handling of /usr/share/fonts added in 2.5.3
Date: Tue, 01 Feb 2011 15:45:37 +0000
Package: dpkg-cross
Version: 2.5.8
Severity: minor


dpkg-cross 2.5.3 added handling for retaining fonts metadata,
ostensibly for the benefit of xfonts-utils - this needs to be
re-checked along with a wider scale review of exactly which
files are retained in -cross packages.

Closing - not an issue worth fixing before Multi-Arch Cross replaces
dpkg-cross anyway and there are far worse hacks which need to remain
(including some yet to be added) in the meantime.
