Description Mark Knoop 2007-07-22 05:58:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Openoffice requires dejavu-lgc-fonts when dejavu-fonts are already installed and
two releases in front of the lgc package. Is there a reason for this?

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2007-07-23 06:43:41 EDT
It was to guarantee that suitable fonts with good coverage were installed to use
with OOo to avoid it picking up crap looking fonts. One or the other dejava
fonts had to be required, and that was the suggested best one at the time.

Anyhow, for F-8 we have liberation fonts and will be requiring those instead,
(yes they are in F-7 as well, but that was towards the end of the F-7
development cycle and landed too late to be required), so this is fixed in
rawhide by requiring neither of the dejavus and instead requiring the
ms-compatible liberation fonts.
