@felixonmars:
IPA fonts series are actually OTF fonts. To avoid an issue on some OSs, extensions have been changed.

See:

> (2) Change of file name extension from .otf to .ttf

Hi, I would like to know why this package is named with otf-* but installs *.ttf files under OTF/ folder?

I think it would make more sense if it's named ttf-ipaexfont and installs in TTF/.

ttf-ipaex has been replaced by otf-ipaexfont[1] with various cleanup.
This will be merged to it soon.
Thx
