Description Kevin Kofler 2013-09-13 18:08:41 EDT
Description of problem:
SDDM bundles 2 copies of the GeosansLight.ttf font:
in blatant violation of the Fedora font packaging guidelines.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check the package contents.

Actual results:
Bundled font (twice, even).

Expected results:
No bundled font.

Additional info:
This should have been a review blocker!

I noticed this going through the heisenbug-kde-theme review, which symlinks to that bundled font (to avoid bundling a third copy, thankfully).
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2013-09-13 18:11:33 EDT
In addition, the font is NOT free as in speech, only free as in beer:
and as such is not allowed in Fedora at all.
Comment 2 Martin Bříza 2013-09-13 18:52:55 EDT
Fixed in rawhide, currently building: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=5933556 . Will see what to do with the other branches and the upstream until Tuesday.
