Description: Mozilla's new Fira font (http://mozilla.github.io/Fira/)
Fedora Account System Username: codeblock

This is my first font package, so it might need some work.
Comment 1 Christopher Meng 2013-09-25 04:01:26 EDT
You shouldn't use %define.
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2013-10-21 03:22:36 EDT
Can you add font information to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:In-progress_fonts by creating new wiki page?
Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2013-10-21 13:12:39 EDT
1) simple way to find font information is to use following command
otfinfo -i *.otf | grep Version

so you got version as 2.001 but as some upstream keep releasing snapshots either adding date in archive name or publishes date on upstream URL, you need to use release tag as 

this way even if upstream fails to bump the release in font file and keep releasing updated tarballs, package can be updated.

your package n-v-r then mozilla-fira-fonts-2.001-0.1.20130925.fc19

2) cp commands should preserve timestamps of files being copied from source archive. Use "cp -p"

3) if this package is only for Fedora then remove Group tag
Comment 6 Ricky Elrod 2013-10-21 14:16:25 EDT
I added the wiki page, but I'm not entirely sure what to put for some of the fields (in the table which I copied from other pages in that category).


Feel free to edit it, and I apologize if I got any of it wrong.
Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2013-10-22 00:13:29 EDT
1) Following comment should be before Source0: line
# Upstream tarball is not versioned. See the "Downloads" section of %%{url}.

also add upstream does not provide direct download link

2) Add some comment for Source3:, from where you got the license file or its information 
OR you can say its standard OFL license text included as fira.LICENSE file

3) Group: tag is not necessary if you are planning this package only for Fedora releases. Please remove it.

4) Add the correct changelog

I have added some information to wiki page of this font.
Comment 8 Ricky Elrod 2013-10-22 15:45:48 EDT
Hah, whoops - missed the Group tag on the subpackages.
Fixed that and made the other corrections.
