Description: ttf-arphic-ukai, ttf-arphic-uming seems duplicate with ttf-fireflysung

I suggess to remove the ttf-archic-*, because the firefly's version keep maintained.

By the way, could change the ttf-fireflysung 's descrition to
"firefly embedded (truetype) bitmap font (Chinese)"

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

Both ttf-arphic-ukai and ttf-arphic-uming are out-of-date. Should I update them or just remove them? All three packages have similar usage stats. I'm not confortable in removing them without being sure if ttf-fireflysung is a correct replacement. Perhaps they will be better than ttf-fireflysung once they're updated. It seems that Debian is using arphic instead of fireflysung.

Hmmm - that's a tough one. I wish we could get more people that use these fonts to comment

It seems that Debian/Ubuntu are developping arphic, at least they host the source. We could just keep them and update them, that might be the simplest solution. On a related note, the scim-related packages are also out-of-date. I could update everything (scim and arphic) and push it to testing then ask around for testers.

I've put updated ttf-arphic-ukai and ttf-arphic-uming in testing. It seems that they now include the firefly fonts so ttf-fireflysung might be no longer needed. See for more details.

ttf-arphic-ukai and ttf-arphic-uming are now in extra. As no-one using these fonts confirmed that ttf-fireflysung is in fact no longer needed, I suggest keeping all three of them and closing this bug report. BTW, ttf-fireflysung is in the list of packages with missing license so it will be updated/fixed as appropriate. After then, it should be good for a while as I don't think there's much developpement going on with it. It won't hurt keeping ttf-fireflysung in the repo as all these fonts are orphans anyway.
