Package: musescore-common
Version: 2.1.0+dfsg1-0.2
Severity: normal

Hi there,

the next version of fluidsynth (1.1.7) will be able to use sound fonts
in the SF3 format that musescore introduced. It is thus appropriate to
split out the FluidR3Mono_GM.sf3 sound font that comes bundled with
musescore into its own package, install it into /usr/share/sounds/sf3/
and add a symlink to the musescore-common package. This way, packages
that use fluidsynth for MIDI rendering, e.g. SDL_Mixer, do not need to
install the whole of musescore-common in order to be able to use this sound

I suggest to use fluidr3mono-gm-soundfont as the name for the new
