Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453487
langpacks need updating to current default CIJK fonts
Last modified: 2008-07-07 08:44:38 EDT
Description of problem:
In Fedora 8 we made some major repackaging changes to the fonts for ja, ko, zh
and also ar and he. The fonts-* packages were split up into individual packages
named after their upstream project. Also in F9 we changed the default font for
Japanese to VLGothic-fonts. In F10 we are removing most of the remaining
packages and also introducing a new default font for Korean (un-fonts-core is
under package review).
So in this bug I would like to describe the required changes. If you prefer
fonts for the above we could also make this a tracking bug but I think that should
hopefully not be necessary.
More details to come as necessary (I guess the fonts in the @fonts comps group
are a pretty good indication of the default fonts though).
Can you just tell me what fonts packages you want for which langpacks and I can
do it immediately.

Here is a patch which should provide the necessary changes.
Though now that we install all those fonts by default anyway, I would rather
openoffice.org langpacks didn't really require any fonts explicitly.
Its a fine theory to not require any fonts at all, but history shows that a most
terrible amount of whining and general bitching about the stupidity of
OpenOffice.org occurs without a guarantee of at least one font installed which
can cover the desired range :-)
