Description Adam Borowski 2020-01-29 11:29:19 UTC
Spec URL: https://angband.pl/tmp/fedora/intel-clear-sans-fonts.spec
SRPM URL: https://angband.pl/tmp/fedora/intel-clear-sans-fonts-1.00-1.fc32.src.rpm
Description: A sharp on-screen sans-serif font
Fedora Account System Username: kilobyte

The TTF name of the public release of the font is "Clear Sans", but there's also "Intel Clear".  I've thus added a fontconfig snippet to make the latter an alias.

I don’t especially want to end up as Clear Sans Fedora maintainer (I have more than enough things on my plate already) but the packaging will need to be converted to the Fonts Guidelines FPC approved yesterday, as soon as the corresponding macro package hits fedora devel and fedora 32

Comment 3 Adam Borowski 2020-02-14 14:22:27 UTC
Hmm... if you've already did the work, it'd probably be better for you to take it.  Our upstream isn't very likely to produce frequent (or any) updates — Intel isn't exactly known for font making.

I'm a part of the fonts team of another distribution (one with a red swirl...), but I have never packaged any font for a RPM distribution before, thus teaching me for an one-off piece is probably not worth your time.

One improvement your packaging doesn't have is a fontconfig alias from "Intel Clear" to "Clear Sans" (the first name tends to come in documents from Intel, the second is one on publicly released font), but even that I've mindlessly lifted from Debian, so it probably fails to obey Fedora rules wrt. eg. sequence numbers.

Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2020-02-14 14:32:28 UTC
Hey, don't give up, the guidelines changes mostly simplify the spec part of the packaging, and it would be nice to have people from other packager teams taking a look as what we do in Fedora, if only to tell us when our choices are braindamaged.

As you wrote upstream is not likely to change so it won't be an heavy maintenance package either way

Comment 5 Nicolas Mailhot 2020-03-07 09:56:20 UTC
FPC has now published the new guidelines:

They are operational in F33, F32, and queued to F31 (only in testing for now)

The bulk of the initial converted font package set made it to F32 before feature freeze.

In addition of additional new font packages were reviewed and build (including packagers others created since the guideline publication)

I’m going to post a full status summary to the devel and fonts lists later in the day.

If you intend to finish the packaging of those fonts, please convert the package to the new guidelines and build the result in koji. You have an example in:

Alternatively, if you don’t intend to pursue the packaging, close this issue and we’ll continue in

(I’ve zero wish to take over someone else’s fine attempt at packaging, I don’t need any new package to my name, I already have more than enough of those, but I don’t want this fine font absent from Fedora forever)

Comment 6 Nicolas Mailhot 2020-03-25 13:46:34 UTC
Ok, I believe we’ve all waited long enough
