Description Keith Stribley 2009-03-17 05:00:09 UTC
Description of problem:

The package is packaging fonts from the font-source directory which have no Graphite or OpenType font tables. This means that most Myanmar words render completely wrongly.

Please use Padauk.ttf and Padauk-Bold.ttf NOT padauk-src.ttf and padaukbold-src.ttf.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.type a Myanmar word in gedit
e.g. မြန်မာ 
Actual results:
The wrap U+103C is rendered around the second consonant, which is wrong.

Expected results:
The wrap U+103C should be around the first consonant

Could you download the following rpm and check?


# rpm -ql sil-padauk-fonts

Comment 2 Keith Stribley 2009-03-25 05:45:45 UTC
Yes the new package works. However, I found I needed to manually remove padauk-fonts rather than sil-padauk-fonts being regarded as an upgrade.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
