Description Nicolas Mailhot 2007-09-23 07:05:58 EDT
Since font packages can drop files in /usr/share/fonts/ without depending on
fontconfig, ownership of /usr/share/fonts/ should be moved from fontconfig to

Since the change is trivial and is needed by many packages -> blocker

Hardly a blocker issue
Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-10-25 21:03:03 EDT
My bad.  filesystem still doesn't own /usr/share/fonts.

Also, filesystem creates /etc/fonts/conf.d, but doesn't own it in %files.  Is
that intentional?  If not, probably other entries are missing too.

Please reassign back to fontconfig after resolving.
Comment 4 Phil Knirsch 2008-03-27 11:30:25 EDT
/etc/fonts/conf.d is already covered by the /etc line in %files.

I've just added /usr/share/fonts to the list and building a new version today in


Read ya, Phil
