Description Jens Petersen 2007-08-17 02:44:35 EDT
Description of problem:
To give better recognition to upstream fonts projects and more clearly
separate unrelated fonts coming from different upstream projects,
it would be good to move the Sazanami fonts to a new package
sazanami-fonts and also make one or more new packages for the bitmap fonts.
This will also allow the individual packages to better reflect
the upstream versioning numbers and license etc.

Additional info:
Since there are a lot of different bitmap fonts included in fonts-japanese
it is probably not feasible to split them all into individual packages.
I believe in the past we did have a number of different packages though
for some of them (eg jisksp*, kappa20).
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2007-08-27 00:16:34 EDT
sazanami-fonts review has been completed and package built for devel.

I built fonts-japanese-0.20061016-10 without the sazanami fonts included.
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2007-09-20 21:52:51 EDT
Probably no more fonts are in fonts-japanese that can be separate except I have
already filed a review bug. waiting for finishing those reviews and push the
updated fonts-japanese against it. FYI.
Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2007-09-26 08:35:13 EDT
Updated fonts-japanese has been built.
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2007-10-23 21:32:57 EDT
IMHO it would still be good to move all the rest of the bitmap fonts to
a separate package or subpackage to make the Japanese fonts more modular.

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.

If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2008-06-27 01:59:26 EDT
I am hoping to remove all our fonts-* packages in F10.

I think fonts-japanese can be renamed to japanese-bitmap-fonts or something like

Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2008-07-03 23:14:51 EDT
