Description Nicolas Mailhot 2008-11-29 06:46:02 EST
Bitstream Vera has long been deprecated in Fedora in favour of DejaVu, which is a community fork and extension of the Bitsream release. The majority of users will have DejaVu installed on system and pulling Vera in is a waste of resources.

Nowadays LGC is only installed for special cases, and people use the full version of the fonts.

The compat packages are transitory and will be gone in F12
