Description:

The pkgdesc for gsfonts says "URW and Postscript core35 fonts", which doesn't make sense given that the package contains Postscript fonts created by the company "URW++".

The description on the web page for gsfonts[0] reads, "URW+ Postscript core35 font releases"; I believe that the Arch package maintainer mistakenly interpreted the "+" as meaning "and", rather than as part of the name "URW+" (the Ghostscript folks seem to like writing it with only one "+").

The full name of the company is "URW++ Design und Development GmbH".

Steps to reproduce: Look at the package.
