plasma-workspace >= 5.5.0 should depend on google-noto-sans-fonts
Last modified: 2016-01-12 18:43:23 EST
As of version 5.5.0, Plasma uses Noto Sans as its default font (see https://www.kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.5.0.php). Consequently, the plasma-workspace package should include a dependency to google-noto-sans-fonts.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open "System Settings" > "Fonts".
2. Click on the "Defaults" button.
3. The very first font in the alphabet will be selected instead of Noto Sans (or Oxygen Sans, for that matter).
Fedora/KDE uses DejaVu by default, I doubt we need this.
I agree it's not essential nor do I feel strongly about it, but I think it would be nice to have. My point is that we should make it easy for end users to switch to the "vanilla" visual settings without the (admittedly minimal) Fedora branding.
For reference, the plasma-workspace package already does have an explicit dependency on oxygen-fonts.
The dep on oxygen-fonts probably isn't needed either.
For background/history, we considered using oxygen fonts too for previous fedora releases, but testing showed them to be insufficient. That dep may be a holdover from that testing (and was never removed)
Maybe a soft dep, Recommends could be used here
Thanks for the explanation! Sounds good to me.
Fedora packaging should use Fedora default fonts. What fonts upstream defaults to should be entirely irrelevant. A dependency on them is NOT wanted.

- drop qt56/moc hack (qtbase should be fixed)
- .spec cosmetics, update URL, use %license
# as of 5.17.0, src/platformtheme/kfontsettingsdata.cpp references: Noto Sans, Oxygen-Mono
# not sure if that warrants hard deps here though -- Rex
