Hi jensp, I need a el5 to ensure build in the same env: http://download.brisbane.redhat.com/~cchance/packaging/liberation-fonts/liberation-fonts.spec http://download.brisbane.redhat.com/~cchance/packaging/liberation-fonts/liberation-fonts-1.0-1.fc8.testing.src.rpm
Comment 9 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-01-13 04:56:50 EST
Please also update the Fedora packages (if you need some testing for example)

This bugzilla was reviewed by QE as a non-FasTrack request. It has since been proposed for FasTrack. The qa_ack has been reset. QE needs to re-review this bugzilla for FasTrack.

These also need to be posted on http://www.redhat.com/promo/fonts/ for the benefit of non-RH users.

Created attachment 295106 [details] liberation-fonts-1.0-1.zip [ Liberation Fonts from EL5 source, 2007-Dec release with hinting ] Second Cody Bosisclair (email@example.com). I (GPS) am at a client site having to exchange with Windows and the December fonts are infinitely better than the May release. I'm doing my best to proliferate a normal.dot template with these three fonts as the defaults. Updating http://www.redhat.com/promo/fonts/ ASAP would be ideal. I have attached a Zip file with these fonts as well as the same License.txt as the original release (given the format differences from the one including in RPMS).
Comment 22 Bryan J Smith 2008-02-17 12:47:00 EST
I would also make a further suggestion. If we are truly trying to proliferate the usage of these fonts, we should consider including a "normal.dot" template that ... - Uses these fonts by default (with any required style changes) - Includes instructions on how to install the normal.dot - Is created as a DOC 8.0 (97) format file for maximum version compatibility If this would be in a separate, additional Zip file, I should probably file a new Bugzilla request. Let me know if that is the case and if I should open one.
