  Chrome/Chromium use "Thin" as default font weight

Bug description:

  Chromium and Google Chrome use "Thin" as the default Noto Sans CJK
  font weight, which makes some Chinese and Japanese web pages difficult
  to read, and thus gives a bad user experience.

  The fonts-noto-cjk version in the PPA

  installs 7 weight specific font files instead of a single "super"
  file. This works around the Chromium/Chrome issue.

  Note: It has been fixed in yakkety via autosync, so "backporting"
  yakkety (as an SRU) instead of uploading from the PPA is an option.

  [Test Case]

  To reproduce the bug:

  * Install Chromium or Google Chrome.
  * Go to <> and notice the very thin characters.
  * Install fonts-noto-cjk from the PPA and notice the difference.

  [Regression Potential]

  This is about another font packaging form, without any change in glyph
  coverage, so the the regression risk should be low.

  [Original description]

  The package seems to only "thin" variant of the font, which makes it
  very unreadable in applications such as Chrome (when it has to fall
  back on Chinese fonts on a mostly-English page). I had to remove the
  package and then manually download the font from Google website and
  install it to make the regular weight available

  Release: 16.04 LTS
  Package Version: 1.004+repack1-1
  Expected: All weights of the noto cjk font to be installed
  Happened: Only the "thin" weight of the font seems to be installed
