One more thing, to follow the convention used by other Indic fonts in
debian, the package should be called ttf-nepali-fonts.  Please look at
ttf-indic-fonts to see how to make a policy-compliant fonts package.

Actually, something just struck me.  Nepali uses Devanagari right?  In
that case it might be better to just add the fonts to ttf-indic fonts or
make a ttf-devanagari-fonts package.  But if these fonts cannot be used
for other languages, it would make sense to have a seperate Nepali
fonts package.
