As you are packaging a single font from an upstream git repo, in the absence of a versioned archive from upstream, I wonder whether it might be better to go with a package version that directly corresponds to the font version? That way, any updated versions that appear in other repos could be more clearly recognised.

Both the head and name tables of this font say that this is version 1.01.

Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2014-01-07 10:13:55 UTC
1) I will suggest to use following release tag
Release Tag for Pre-Release Packages: 0.%{X}.%{alphatag}
and version tag as 1.01

So, package name is google-android-emoji-fonts-1.01-0.1.20120228

2) It took a lot of time to clone the fonts git (approx. 495 MB data) but I see another easy way is to use URL https://android.googlesource.com/platform/frameworks/base.git/+archive/jb-release/data/fonts.tar.gz and extract required files and create new source archive.

3) Remove following files from the source archive as they are not needed
 Android.mk  fallback_fonts-ja.xml  fallback_fonts.xml  fonts.mk  MODULE_LICENSE_APACHE2  NOTICE  system_fonts.xml  vendor_fonts.xml

4) As the getdroid.sh only fetches AndroidEmoji font, name it as getandroidemoji.sh

5) No need of clean section in spec file. Remove following from spec
rm -fr %{buildroot}

Comment 4 Peter Oliver 2014-01-07 23:05:08 UTC
Spec URL: http://mavit.fedorapeople.org/rpm/google-android-emoji-fonts.spec
SRPM URL: http://mavit.fedorapeople.org/rpm/google-android-emoji-fonts-1.01-1.20120228git.fc21.src.rpm

Having consulted https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:NamingGuidelines#Snapshot_packages, I have changed the package name to google-android-emoji-fonts-1.01-1.20120228git.

The gitdroid.sh script was taken from the google-droid-fonts package.  I have written a new script, get-source-from-git.sh, which fetches the files from https://android.googlesource.com/platform/frameworks/base.git/+archive/jb-release/data/fonts.tar.gz and manipulates them into a source tarball.

Are you sure NOTICE can be omitted?  It contains the licence.

I have removed the %clean section.

Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2014-01-09 09:40:46 UTC
1) Please use the recommended way of naming release tags
Pre-Release Packages: 0.%{X}.%{alphatag}

2) I take NOTICE is a duplication of README.txt file. README file clearly says License URL and fonts in that directory licensed under Apache 2 license whereas NOTICE just provides text of license file only. 
   If you want you can package it as I don't see it as a blocker.

Other than these, packaging looks Ok. fontconfig rule not needed as this is pictorial font.

Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2014-01-09 09:47:26 UTC
Group tag is not mandatory now so you can remove that also.

Comment 7 Peter Oliver 2014-01-09 13:20:35 UTC
Could you explain why that is the appropriate release tag?  As I understand it, this is a "post-release package" rather than a "pre-release package", as described at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:NamingGuidelines#Snapshot_packages, but I accept that my understanding may be wrong :-)

Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2014-01-13 03:34:54 UTC
I asked this release tag issue on packaging list and got reply to clarify with upstream about what they think. Here is that reply https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/packaging/2014-January/009919.html

Comment 9 Peter Oliver 2014-01-13 12:48:41 UTC

I'm convinced.  Android don't do tarball releases, they just tag the release in git.  What I hadn't considered before was that that's a release of Android as a whole, not a release of this font.  So, if there's never been a release, this must be a prerelease.

Comment 18 Bryan Yount 2015-02-06 23:13:57 UTC
Is it possible to get this font (or the discussed upstream replacement) included in a default Desktop install of Fedora?
