Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-03-29 14:53:50 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/ofl-goudy-bookletter-1911-fonts.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/ofl-goudy-bookletter-1911-fonts-20080206-1.fc11.src.rpm
Based on the roman of Frederic Goudy's Kennerley Old Style (designed and cut in 
1911 for a limited edition of "The Door in the Wall and Other Stories" by H G 
Wells, published by Mitchell Kennerley). The letters, though not condensed, may 
seem to fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, giving text an unusually 
solid appearance.
Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-03-30 15:15:41 EDT
Initial review:

1. please use "oflb" not "ofl" as prefix, since OFL is already commonly used to identify a license the Open Font Library folks use OFLB to designate themselves

2. you have the wrong font name in your fontconfig file

3. you have some stray %defines, we're supposed to use %globals nowadays

4. %common_desc is not really useful for anything in a mono-font spec file, though I suppose it's harmless

5. your metadata declaration order is unusual, though it'll probably only annoy people diffing spec files

Nothing too difficult to fix for an experienced packager, and only 1 and 2 dangerous. Thank you for continuing to add fonts to Fedora.

New Package CVS Request
Package Name: oflb-goudy-bookletter-1911-fonts
Short Description: Clean serif font based on Kennerly Old Style
Owners: spot
Branches: F-9 F-10 devel
InitialCC: fonts-sig

... and it's done.
Comment 5 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-04-01 17:17:56 EDT
I branched it for F-9 and F-10, but it would not build for either target because the versions of fontforge on those branches does not have support for the python extensions (rawhide does). It is built in rawhide.
