Package: www.debian.org
Severity: minor

Lintian bugs #907725 and #878609 were due to some confusion because the
section documentation at https://packages.debian.org/en/sid/ says both:

X Window System software
  X servers, libraries, fonts, window managers, terminal emulators and
  many related applications.

  Font packages.

which leaves ambiguous where X-only fonts should go.  However, in practice,
they're all in the fonts section:

wanderer:~$ grep-aptavail -F Package -s Section -r ^xfonts- | sort | uniq -c
     73 Section: fonts
      1 Section: non-free/fonts
      2 Section: x11

Could you just remove ", fonts" from the description of the x11 section to
avoid the ambiguity?
