Description Mamoru TASAKA 2009-02-16 09:11:32 EST
Description of problem:

The latter one has a lot of Provides:font(bar) in build.log, while
the former does not have any.
This is because in /usr/lib/rpm/fontconfig.prov $fcquery
aborts immediately if fontconfig is not installed (also
see "root.log"s)

- For packages not related to fonts, "BR: fontconfig" is not
- Current font packaging guidelines "suggests" to include
  "BR: fontpackages-devel" (I don't know if this is "should" or
  "must" or just "is better")
adding "R: fontconfig" to fontpackages-devel seems the best

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild srpm related to fonts which seems to match
   current font packaging guidelines with mockbuild
2. rpm -q --provides <the rebuild package>
Actual results:
None of the virtual Provides related to fonts can be seen

I'll push a new fontpackage release this evening (CET). It's almost ready, I was just waiting to make sure Behdad and Panu didn't change their mind again (they pushed the rpm/fontconfig plumbing a few hours ago in koji)
Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-02-16 13:41:35 EST
A new fontpackages has been pushed however it depends for other reasons on the new rpm that will be pushed koji-side tomorrow

Feel free to re-start the build as soon as this new rpm is deployed on the builders (if I miss it)

Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-02-16 14:58:07 EST
Oh, well, I can't wait. Pushed a band-aid


Just don't try to use the templates in there before koji is updated.
