[OpenJDK] Adapt to F11 fonts packaging changes
Last modified: 2009-05-11 13:07:16 EDT
A huge font repackaging operation is ongoing in Rawhide.
IIRC java is still not 100% fontconfig-ified and depends on font files location.
Please check before each Alpha/Beta/Test releases the distro font changes have not broken something openjdk-side
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
