Spec URL: http://rbhalera.fedorapeople.org/lohit-fonts/lohit-fonts.spec
SRPM URL: http://rbhalera.fedorapeople.org/lohit-fonts/lohit-fonts-2.1.5-1.fc8.src.rpm
Description: This package provides the Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Tamil,
Kannada, Malayalam, Oriya, Telugu TrueType/Opentype fonts.

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2007-09-11 06:52:44 UTC
rpmlint output:

 lohit-fonts.src: E: no-changelogname-tag

need a initial change entry explaining the package is derived from fonts-indic.

 lohit-fonts.src: W: invalid-license GPL

License field needs to be updated, see:

I guess it should be GPLv2.  Unless we have some explicit font embedding exception?

Comment 2 Rahul Bhalerao 2007-09-11 10:17:11 UTC
Updated the files with the required changes. 

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2007-09-13 11:23:11 UTC
Thanks for the update.  Please bump the release number for each new revision.

The rpmlint output is clean now. :)

Presumably for Indic we don't need fonts.dir and fonts.scale?
How about a catalogue file?

My review follows:

+ rpmlint clean
+ package follows upstream project name
+ package is based on fonts-indic
+ following Packaging Guidelines except as noted below
+ license is good (GPLv2) and included
+ spec file is clearly written
+ md5sum is pristine
bb9497ee772062b97ff00a1a68b17c98  fonts-indic-2.1.5.tar.gz
+ builds correctly
+ filelists are correct
+ font install scriptlets are standard

- should not Requires fontconfig explicitly

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2007-09-13 11:27:12 UTC
Created attachment 194541 [details]

- also should not obsolete fonts-indic packages - they will now require

and some other things I noticed.

from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=281901#c5, retain old Source
tag instead one suggested in above patch.

Ok fair enough - I should have rebuilt before posting... ;)
(wget doesn't handle it well either - and we probably need a better
location of future releases anyway, having it on the wiki is a little

Please put the full URL as a comment above the Source line.

Comment 7 Rahul Bhalerao 2007-09-17 13:35:38 UTC

Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2007-09-21 10:17:03 UTC
- please mention the actual changes made in the changelog
- should not require fontconfig (see discussion on fedora-packaging list)

rpmlint gives:

Thanks Parag for getting the package built.

Comment 17 Jens Petersen 2007-10-08 03:21:21 UTC
Maybe my indications on the license were not quite accurate.
According to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing/FAQ we reach (4)
of the first question ("How do I figure out what version of the GPL/LGPL
my package is under?") and so COPYING implies GPLv2+, if I'm not mistaken.

Please update the License field to that in the next update.

We should really make the version explicit in the README file say for the next 
release of Lohit fonts though (the .ttf files themselves just say GPL).
