SRPM Name or Url: http://mpeters.us/fc_extras/DoulosSIL-fonts-4.0.14.r1-1.fc4.src.rpm
The goal for this product was to provide a single Unicode-based font family
that would contain a comprehensive inventory of glyphs needed for almost any
Roman- or Cyrillic-based writing system, whether used for phonetic or
orthographic needs. In addition, there is provision for other characters and
symbols useful to linguists. This font makes use of state-of-the-art font
technologies to support complex typographic issues, such as the need to
position arbitrary combinations of base glyphs and diacritics optimally.
Doulos is very similar to Times/Times New Roman, but only has a single face -
regular. It is intended for use alongside other Times-like fonts where a range
of styles (italic, bold) are not needed.
rpmlint will complain about license.
gentium-fonts is a package already in Extras with the same license
rpmlint will complain about EOL of the pdf in documentation.
There probably should be a filter for pdf files in rpmlint - the pdf views fine in evince/acroread/etc - fixing the eol (at least with sed) would break the pdf.
How does this package differ from the doulos-fonts package which is already in
Extras? It looks to be the same thing.
I must have mis-spelled it with the search.
