Package: fonts-monoid
Version: 0.61-1
Severity: wishlist

Hi there,

thank you very much for maintaining this very interesting font in
Debian. However,

$ dpkg -L fonts-monoid | grep \.ttf | wc -l

WTF is that?! This is exactly 800 different font variants per style
(Bold, Italic, Regular, Retina and Monoisone Regular).

Also, I find more than 400 MB installed size for a font package rather

$ apt-cache show fonts-monoid | grep Size
Installed-Size: 441617
Size: 2013832

I really don't think it is necessary to include *all* font variants
and combinations thereof in the Debian package. If you e.g. visit the
Monoid homepage at https://larsenwork.com/monoid/ and click the
"Download" button, you receive a nice ZIP file which contains 4 files
with only the base variants for each style.

I strongly suggest to split the package up into at least a
fonts-monoid package which includes the four base variants as well as
fonts-monoisome and fonts-monoid-extra, which includes all the other
variants. Or, maybe even better, split it up into more -extra
packages, e.g. fonts-monoid-regular-extra, fonts-monoid-italic-extra,
etc. Another alternative would be to split the packages up by groups
of variants, or whatever. However, the packages need a big fat warning
regarding their installed size and the sheer number of installe dfont

Thank you!

 - Fabian

   * Team upload.
   * Split the package up into 5 individual binary packages which
     contain Monoid and Monoisome in their normal, halfloose, halftight,
     loose and tight tracking variants, respectively (Closes: #891855).
     + Install only the basic sub-variants. Do not install the 0, 1, l, Dollar,
       NoCalt, Large, Small, XtraLarge and XtraSmall sub-variants anymore.
       It is currently impossible to explicitly select them in common font
       choosers, anyway.
     + Let the normal tracking variant package suggest the other ones.
   * Integrate build system into debian/rules, instead of patching it in.
   * Bump debhelper compat to 11.
   * Use secure debian/copyright format URI.
   * Add myself to debian packaging copyright holders.
