Yannis Kefallinos (1894–1958) was one of the most innovative engravers of his
generation and the first who researched methodicaly the aesthetics of book and
typographic design in Greece. He taught at the Fine Arts School of Athens and
established the first book design workshop from which many practising artists
of the 60's and 70's had graduated.
In the late 50's Kefallinos designed and published an exquisite book with
engraved illustrations of the ancient white funerary pottery in Attica in
collaboration with Varlamos, Montesanto, Damianakis. For the text of
Kefallinos' Δέκα λευκαί λήκυθοι (1956) the artist used a typeface which he
himself had designed a few years before for an unrealised edition of
Theocritos' Idyls. Its complex and heavily decorative design does point to
aesthetic codes which preoccupied his artistic expression and, although
impractical for contemporary text setting, it remains an original display face,
or it can be used as initials.
The book design workshop of the Fine Arts School of Athens has been recently
reorganised, under the direction of professor Leoni Vidali, and with her
collaboration George D. Matthiopoulos has redesigned digitaly this historical
font which is now available as GFS Theokritos.

Your description lines must not exceed 79 characters. If a line is exceeding
this number, cut it to fit in two lines.
gfs-theokritos-fonts.noarch: W: no-version-in-last-changelog
The last changelog entry doesn't contain a version. Please insert the
version that is coherent with the version of the package and rebuild it.
Updated version posted at the usual place to cut lines at 79 columns.
Note that rpmlint does not know how to count UTF-8 characters, so if it still
complains do check in an UTF-8 aware editor he's actually right (he isn't)
On the other rpmlint warning:
rpmlint wants to force you to put the version at the end of the first changelog
line, however the official approved Fedora changelog format list includes a
style where the version is not on this line
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Changelogs, 3rd style) so
rpmlint's warning is bogus
I agree it was big work for you to ask to fix small issue but still I prefer to
follow what rpmlint says till rpmlint tool gives it as Error and not Warning.
Dunno, But with updated version I still see

Otherwise Packaging looks ok.
I don't want you to waste your time again now so if you want to fix it then fix
at time of cvs import.
rpmlint is wrong. I actually cheched the line it tags manually - it's less than
79 columns in UTF-8, which is our default encoding.
