Description Behdad Esfahbod 2006-07-14 12:52:06 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~behdad/fedora/dejavu-lgc-fonts/dejavu-lgc-fonts.spec SRPM URL: http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~behdad/fedora/dejavu-lgc-fonts/dejavu-lgc-fonts-2.7-1.src.rpm Description: The DejaVu LGC fonts are high-quality Latin/Greek/Cyrillic fonts based on Bitstream Vera fonts ((http://gnome.org/fonts/)). Its purpose is to provide a wider range of characters while maintaining the original look and feel. Discussion: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=170218 Matthias Clasen and I decided to only push the Latin/Greek/Cyrillic version into core.

Lacks fontconfig configuration right now. Working on it.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-07-14 15:10:46 EDT
Tech ack. Are we not obsoleting Vera? Out of curiousity, what locales does this give us *new* coverage with, outside of Greek?

(In reply to comment #2) > Tech ack. Are we not obsoleting Vera? Not yet, as we are still evaluating it. Withdrawal is not quite out of question yet. > Out of curiousity, what locales does this give us *new* coverage with, outside > of Greek? I don't know. Most people just report whether DejaVu works for them, not LGC. So it's a bit hard to know. The langcover.txt in the tarball is empty.

NEEDSWORK: - buildroot is wrong RPMLINT just complains about the license, but you include the license so thats OK. Fix the buildroot and I approve. I've added to dist-fc6 owner firstname.lastname@example.org How should this go into Comps? How will it get installed on people's systems? Please close this report when you've built for rawhide.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-17 15:11:02 EDT
The proposal for test2 is to put dejavu in the default install in comps and add a fontconfig conf file that makes dejavu the default. That will allow us to see if people find serious issues with dejavu. I have imported the package into cvs now, and fixed the buildroot. I'm waiting for the mentioned fontconfig snipplet from Behdad, then I'll build it.

Could you please package the newer 2.8 version of dejavu-lgc? As far as I can see it has some fixes for cyrillic and hinting for greek among other things for the lgc variant. Thanks.
