Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1261022
.eot, .svg and .woff files missing
Last modified: 2016-11-22 09:08:21 EST
Description of problem:
I would need those files for a requirement in OpenStack Dashboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The source zip that I use does not contain them. If you know a way to get a tarball from the Google Fonts site--or from anywhere else--that is both stable--i.e., won't change silently if the fonts are updated--and contains all the typefaces in all 4 formats, I will consider this. Otherwise, bad luck...

Then that's a bit of pointless cargo culting by openstack since no browser that matters actually needs a font format other than opentype for floss fonts nowadays (and that has been the case for quite a long time)
And I'm pretty sure legacy browsers won't pass tls negociation anyway given how fast people are deprecating old ciphers and ssl modes
Just say no, as fedora packaging guidelines do. Browsers that can not use opentype web fonts can live without them, not worth the pain of fat font rpms or having to investigate which format was broken during conversion when people report problems.
I have been pointed to https://github.com/choffmeister/roboto-fontface-bower
Nicolas, can you please point me to the packaging guidelines location, where it says, carrying ttf is forbidden?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
We switched to https://github.com/google/roboto , which does regular releases. But it only ships .ttf in the release tarball.
