Description Michal Jaegermann 2009-02-04 15:28:51 EST
Description of problem:

Before an update there were installed liberation-fonts-1.04.93-6.fc11 and 
liberation-fonts-common-1.04.93-6.fc11. The current update "obsoleted" liberation-fonts and "replaced" it with liberation-fonts-common.  In yum.log:

Feb 04 12:55:50 Installed: liberation-fonts-common-1.04.93-8.fc11.noarch
Feb 04 12:58:20 Erased: liberation-fonts

Only there are no actual fonts after these operations.  It appears that the idea was to replace those with 'liberation-fonts-compat' package.  A typo in specs?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-02-04 15:43:57 EST
Yes, the latest liberation rawhide package releases are "strange"

I'll probably won't be able to find the time soonish to try to understand them.

Caius: how about you just follow the templates strictly, taking inspiration from how mgopen (or dejavu, or vera...) obsoleted cleanly their old monolithic fonts package, instead of trying to come up with a new obsoletion pattern?

Patch with reference of dejavu-fonts:
