Description Jon Stanley 2008-07-23 00:39:08 UTC
SPEC: http://jstanley.fedorapeople.org/sportrop-fonts.spec
SRPM: http://jstanley.fedorapeople.org/sportrop-fonts-0.9-1.fc9.src.rpm

A better description would be nice - there's no upstream description, and I'm
horrible at describing it, but it's a cool font!

Note that I packaged BOTH ttf and otf in this package. Is there preference for
one or the other when upstream includes both?


$ rpmlint ../RPMS/noarch/sportrop-fonts-0.9-1.fc9.noarch.rpm 
sportrop-fonts.noarch: W: wrong-file-end-of-line-encoding
sportrop-fonts.noarch: W: wrong-file-end-of-line-encoding

These are upstream files distributed unmodified.

Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-07-23 08:10:08 UTC
1. Please add a page on this font in the wiki to document this font
(using the http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Font_description_template template)
Please make sure your other fonts are documented too.
(This is used on pages like
which are referenced in the distro release notes)

2. look at the gfs fonts for example to see how to fix the warning. We consider
this kind of change a non-functionnal recoding

3. The TTF/OTF issue is currently being discussed in bug #455995. Please join
the discussion.

Comment 2 Jon Stanley 2008-07-23 12:22:32 UTC
New SRPM: http://jstanley.fedorapeople.org/sportrop-fonts-0.9-3.fc9.src.rpm


This fixes the rpmlint warning above and splits OTF and TTF into subpackages in
a generic way - see my post to fedora-fonts-list for more.

Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-07-24 21:18:05 UTC
Hi Jon,

After discussing it on various forums the consensus seems to be that only the
OTF (OpenType CFF) version should be packaged. So you can simplify the whole
thing considerably.

I apologize for waiting so long to get this part clarified

Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-07-25 13:12:39 UTC
Looking at it a bit more, the TTF file size is 3 times the OTF file so the last
one is probably incomplete. Package the TTF file (sorry)

Also you can use %setup. The gfs fonts only use unzip directly because GFS
releases fonts in a weird Apple zip variant %setup can not cope with

So just:
1. revert to a simple package
2. that only includes the TTF file
3. and uses %setup
4. and take care of your missing wiki page

and I'll approve the whole lot

OK, not enough caffeine today.

http://jstanley.fedorapeople.org/sportrop-fonts-0.9-4.fc9.src.rpm is the SOURCE
RPM :)
