Nice idea! Thanks for making!

Would you consider to depend on ttf-ms-fonts instead of ttf-ms-win10? That brings generic support for all packages providing the MS Core fonts including the new ttf-ms-win11 package. (As the fonts are just a runtime dependency and not required to build this package, it would be nice to move them to the package() section. This will allow building in a clean chroot without downloading any fonts there first.)

I would not provide a specific version ttf-liberation=10.0 since version 10.0 does not exist upstream. It's probably better to fail the installation when another package actually introduces a version requirement for ttf-liberation, so it can be investigated why.

Below are the changes I would do. Works fine so far.

pkgdesc="Shim package to satisfy 'ttf-liberation' dependencies via 'ttf-ms-win*'; see for details"

package () {
  #Package requires MS Core fonts to be installed, ideally provided via 'ttf-ms-win10' or 'ttf-ms-win11'
