Well, I just deleted that PPA.

The Debian maintainer is absent at the moment, but we are making 
progress on our own (<>), and upgraded 
versions of fonts-noto-cjk are now in {bionic,disco}-proposed and 

Since the proposed SRUs affect most CJK users and include changes beyond 
the glyphs for rendering the Reiwa character, we hope for help with 
testing by users who speak Chinese, Japanese and/or Korean before the 
packages are made available to all users via -updates. Please find

Please submit a comment on the bug report if you test. Thanks in advance 
for your help!
