Description Nicolas Mailhot 2009-03-15 19:58:22 UTC
We advocate building fonts from sources but do not do it for lohit which is a Red Hat/Fedora font project.

Please make the lohit package generate fonts from sfds (as the dejavu people showed, regular building from sources helps improve both fonts and font tools)

Comment 1 Rahul Bhalerao 2009-03-19 15:15:00 UTC
Certainly, I am looking forward to do that soonest possible.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2009-04-07 05:54:01 UTC
I suggest doing this after F-11 GA - it is too risky at this point.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:16:04 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

fixed in rawhide
please note that lohit-fonts is now split in lohit-<lang-name>-fonts and bug is fixed in split packages
