Comment 1 Christopher Meng 2013-09-07 21:55:48 EDT
1. Remove rm -fr %{buildroot} in %install

2. Remove %clean section

3. Make should be with smp flags if possible.(parallel build)
Comment 2 Sean Burke 2013-09-07 22:56:49 EDT
I have updated the spec and SRPM accordingly. I have also uploaded a patch, available at, which fixes some issues in the build that I had missed earlier.
Comment 3 Jamie Nguyen 2013-09-09 07:05:12 EDT
Hi Sean! DISCLAIMER: I'm not a sponsor.

It's good practice to bump the Release tag and add a new %changelog entry when fixing things in your spec/srpm, and then post new links to your spec/srpm. Reviewers can then compare junicode-fonts-0.7.8-1 and junicode-fonts-0.7.8-2, or glance at %changelog to see how the spec has progressed.

I'm not that familiar with font packaging, but the package looks good to me. 

rpmlint returns no warnings:

  $ rpmlint *.rpm
  2 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

Metadata appears correct:

Good luck finding a sponsor!

Thank you for the feedback. If desired, I can return the linked files to the first revision and provide new links for the new versions.
Comment 5 Christopher Meng 2013-12-05 03:05:30 EST
Have you found a sponsor yet?
Comment 6 Paul Flo Williams 2013-12-05 10:25:20 EST
Please consider adding

BuildRequires: ttfautohint

The Makefile looks for this but doesn't complain if it isn't found.
Comment 7 Christopher Meng 2014-02-20 03:46:03 EST

Any news here?

Comment 8 Sean Burke 2014-02-21 01:07:27 EST
I've updated the spec to require ttfautohint and to fix the build when it is used, as its options have changed since the Makefile was last updated.

Spec URL:

I have not yet found a sponsor. I will attempt to do so.
Comment 9 Christopher Meng 2014-02-21 01:14:54 EST
Yes, I hope you can find a sponsor quickly:

I have not see any activity by the submitter using his FAS in datagrepper output in Fedora project.
