Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-17 04:33:46 UTC
Behdad, should we take this patch for F10 ? 
Or are you still holding out for a fontconfig release ?

Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-10-18 17:32:59 UTC
well it would be nice if the conf.avail stuff was arbitrated first

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-18 21:08:27 UTC
I don't see how conf.avail should block our Indic users from having proper fonts in F10.

Comment 6 Behdad Esfahbod 2008-10-20 23:07:45 UTC
Built 2.6.0-3.fc10.
