[Bug 1468027] Re: change default CJK fonts to Noto CJK

Sorry to bother you again, but...

I tested to replace the single "super" OTC file with 7 weight specific
OTC files, and it seems like this is sufficient to fix "the Thin issue"
in Chrome/Chromium. So I have uploaded a simpler proposal to the PPA,
without the additional fonts-noto-cjk-extras package.

I would of course appreciate if some could test it, to make sure I
didn't overlook something.


(Please remember to uninstall the now obsolete, and possibly
conflicting, fonts-noto-cjk-extras.)

Bug description:
  just realize that fonts-noto-cjk is available in the repository, finally its packaged.
  i don't really know about korean community.
  But for Chinese and Japanese community, i think that the answer is clear.
  noto-cjk is definitely better what we had before, like fonts- wqy and fonts-droid.
  Android community had received these complains for years, finally they got them fixed on lollipop.
  Fedora also set it as default chinese font start from F21.
  and of course, i still hope that ubuntu could drop those 69-language-selector fontconfig files, just like what F13 did.
