[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#785455: update package description



Source: fonts-ipaexfont
Version: 00201-4
Severity: normal

For ordinary people, the differences between:
 fonts-ipafont-mincho
 fonts-ipaexfont-mincho
 fonts-ipamj-mincho
are difficult to figure out from their package description since they
are not synchronized.  I read the upstream web site and summarized them
in the consistent set of the description.  I hope the differences are
clear from this updated package description.

I attach my patch against the jessie package.

The use of IPAex Mincho over IPAexMincho is the intentional one
following upstream web site.
