Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-02-13 22:53:45 EST
Spec URL: http://sundaram.fedorapeople.org/packages/sarai-fonts.spec
SRPM URL: http://sundaram.fedorapeople.org/packages/sarai-fonts-1.0-1.fc8.src.rpm

This package provides a free Sarai Hindi TrueType font.
Comment 1 Rahul Bhalerao 2008-02-14 07:39:50 EST
Output of rpmlint:
$ rpmlint sarai-fonts-1.0-1.fc8.noarch.rpm 
sarai-fonts.noarch: W: no-documentation

The above may be ignored, but it is recommended to include a license text file
as a part of documentation.

You may use %{fontname} in following line:
  4 Name:        sarai-fonts

I think URL should be the one from sarai.net. 

According to new policies, please replace $RPM_BUILD_ROOT with %{buildroot}.
Rest all looks fine.

Fixed URL
Used macro as suggested
Added License

I checked the policies and didn't see one enforcing a particular style of
buildroot. The packaging guidelines suggests the package maintainer pick one and
stick to it which is what I am doing now. 
Comment 3 Rahul Bhalerao 2008-02-15 04:05:24 EST
Output of rpmlint:
"sarai-fonts.noarch: E: description-line-too-long This package provides a free
Sarai Hindi TrueType font. It is meant for print and publishing needs."

There should be a line break every 80 characters.
The URL given for Source0 is not a direct link to the font file. It gives
another webpage. I would suggest to keep the earlier source, i.e. just
