[openoffice.org] Adapt to font package renamings
Last modified: 2009-01-20 05:01:13 EST
Notification of font package renamings
FPC unexpectedly refused to ratify a proposal that put into writing our de-facto font package naming rules for the past years, and requested naming changes. As a result many font packages have been or will be renamed soon (including recently created packages)
We have detected your package depends on such a font package. Please change your dependencies accordingly.
To ease the transition and avoid breaking F11 Alpha DejaVu has already been renamed but still declares its old names for full via rpm Provides. Those provides will be removed for Fedora 11 beta, to ensure no remaining legacy deps remains in the distribution. In the meanwhile packages depending on DejaVu full won't break and can be adapted at your leasure.
This issue seems to assume that I know what the issue is about. I don't know what the problem is and what the proposed solution in. I don't live and breathe the font situation de jour, all this issue says is "there is something about fonts, and there is a pile of links about it"
Please take a look at the pile of links, they contain the info you ask for. If I repeated it here and in all the bugs that need it I'd only forget stuff, make mistakes, and waste everyone's time.
Drat. Added the right link in the wrong report.
In this issue you're just warned font packages you depend on have been/will be renamed shortly, so your package dependencies will break.
There is not much to do except changing your deps once that happens (dejavu has been renamed, liberation has in koji but has not hit rawhide yet, smc had been too, and you may depend on others yet)
And just to be 100% clear I didn't ask for this latest renaming run, FPC forced it on us, I'm only the poor sod who gets to implement their decision and be yelled at, so if you're not happy complain at them not at me.
So this is change font requires. Adapted to the ones I see at the moment.
