Hi jensp, I need a el5 to ensure build in the same env:

This bugzilla was reviewed by QE as a non-FasTrack request.
It has since been proposed for FasTrack. The qa_ack has
been reset. QE needs to re-review this bugzilla for FasTrack.
Ready to be built:
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
on the solution and/or where to find the updated files,
please follow the link below. You may reopen this bug report
if the solution does not work for you.
These also need to be posted on http://www.redhat.com/promo/fonts/ for the benefit of non-RH users.

to exchange with Windows and the December fonts are infinitely better than the
May release. I'm doing my best to proliferate a normal.dot template with these

would be ideal.
I have attached a Zip file with these fonts as well as the same License.txt as
the original release (given the format differences from the one including in
I would also make a further suggestion. If we are truly trying to proliferate
the usage of these fonts, we should consider including a "normal.dot" template
- Uses these fonts by default (with any required style changes)
- Includes instructions on how to install the normal.dot
- Is created as a DOC 8.0 (97) format file for maximum version compatibility
If this would be in a separate, additional Zip file, I should probably file a
new Bugzilla request. Let me know if that is the case and if I should open one.
I've created bug 433513 to address the issue of the font files needing to be updated on the Red Hat web
