Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-01-04 05:29:37 EST
Thank you for packaging a new font.

Initial remarks:
— you should convert to the new Fedora packaging templates. That will make Behdad happy and simplify your spec file quite a bit
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Simple_fonts_spec_template (plain text version in fontpackages-devel)

— please use lowercase package name to keep consistency with other font packages such as dejavu-fonts

— You have more complete fontconfig templates that just need filing in fontpackages-devel (please send them upstream for inclusion in the font archive when you're happy with them)

— please ask upstream to add a detached txt license file, a readme and a fontlog. The OFL is quite specific about stuff like reserved font names, that require documentation in the license text and fontlog

— this font is available in the Open Font Library. Please ask upstream what the canonical home should be. If it is the Open Font Library, add the oflb- prefix to the fontname

— please add a page to the wiki that describes this font and will be referenced in the F11 release notes, using this template:
(see also http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Font_package_lifecycle )

⇒ NEEDINFO while this is being taken care of
