Re: Bug#500532: please improve english NEWS.Debian text

Here for d-l-e readers is the current NEWS.Debian text:

ttf-kochi (1.0.20030809-6) unstable; urgency=low         

  | Please use ttf-sazanami-{mincho,gothic}, instead of ttf-kochi   |           
  kochi upstream development is discontinued and upstream suggest to use
  "sazanami" font (ttf-sazanami-mincho/gothic), kochi based one. So we will
  not fix some corrupted glyphes with kochi (those glyphes are fixed with
  sazanami -U+2211, U+221F, U+222E, U+301D, U+301F, U+3231, U+3232, U+3239,
  U+32A4, U+32A5, U+32A6, U+32A7, U+32A8, and U+33CD).
  So Users, please use ttf-sazanami-mincho/gothic font, not ttf-kochi-*.

(Spelling: development, glyphs.)

I'd like to reduce the repetitions of "the $fontname fonts", maybe
like this:

  Upstream development of the kochi fonts has been discontinued. The author
  of these fonts suggests as a replacement the use of the kochi-based
  "sazanami" fonts. These fix several glyphs which are corrupted in the
  kochi fonts.
