These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks

We did not receive any responses from the original glyph creator, and cannot get
enough information to clear the background check of the font. What information
are required before the inclusion in the Fedora Core again:

For clearing the legal background of the fonts, could you help us
getting an ownership statement, mainly stating:
   - From the designers of all glyphs within the font and ownership of them
   - the origin of the glyph design or what fonts/glyphs is it inspired from.
   - the owner(s) have granted the license of GPL.

Just to clarify, the ownership statements need to be written by the original
owners (scanned document is great, but email is fine as well). Thanks.

I seems this request went nowere.

Since our font packaging process has changed a lot in the past months, please
restart using the instructions on
if you're still interested
