Description Nicolas Mailhot 2009-01-17 12:25:40 UTC
FPC unexpectedly refused to approve a proposal that put into writing the package naming rules for fonts Fedora had been using in the past years, and made us change it.

Deal with the fallout.


The revised font naming rules are here:

Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-02-18 19:33:11 UTC
This is a reminder for all the packagers that still have bugs open about adapting to font packaging guidelines there is only one month left before Fedora 11 beta:

A week of this month will see the Fedora 11 mass rebuild, that will load the build farm:

As already converted packages showed it is quite possible to make mistakes during the conversion. Please make releng and QA happy and don't wait till the last minute to do your changes (avoid pre-beta panic). If possible start before the mass rebuild so we don't burn cycles on incorrect packages.

The PackageKit enhancements stated for Fedora 11 assume fonts and font-using packages are sane (basically respect packaging guidelines). It is quite possible that not-converted packages will interact with the F11 font autoinstall feature in "interesting" ways.

We don't want that

There is extensive documentation on the wiki and most of your questions have likely already been answered there. Please do read the FAQ before making more work for the support team by asking questions answered there.

Adding 'Tracking' keyword to be excluded from rawhide rebase to Fedora 11

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2010-01-14 22:23:21 UTC
Assigning to someone more likely than me to track when all the dependent bugs
are fixed.

Comment 4 Paul Flo Williams 2011-05-18 11:29:03 UTC
All dependents are now marked as closed. I've been through them and they seem to be closed correctly. mapserver (bug #480462) and gramps (bug #480457) were CLOSED WONTFIX by the F11 EOL but the packages in F14 have the correctly-named dependencies.

Closing. Please reopen if I've misunderstood something.
