DejaVu provides an expanded version of the Vera font family aiming for
quality and broader Unicode coverage while retaining the original Vera
style. DejaVu currently works towards conformance with the Multilingual
European Standards (MES-1 and MES-2) for Unicode coverage. The DejaVu
fonts provide serif, sans and monospaced variants.
This package includes additional variants, such as oblique, italic,
bold-oblique, bold-italic and the condensed forms.
DejaVu fonts are intended for use on low-resolution devices (mainly
computer screens) but can be used in printing as well.

* The transitional ttf-dejavu package must depend on ttf-dejavu-{core,extra}
instead of the fonts-dejavu-* flavors, so the fonts files are available
at the expected locations (Closes: #706516).
* Make ttf-dejavu also depend on fonts-dejavu for a smoother transition.
[ Christian Perrier ]
