Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-04-01 21:20:58 UTC
Spec URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/woodardworks-laconic-fonts.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/woodardworks-laconic-fonts-001.001-1.fc11.src.rpm
Description: 
Laconic is a typeface font design meant to be dry without quite seeming
parched. Curves and diagonals are kept to a bare minimum without sacrificing
legibility. What it lacks in design features are more than made up for in
OpenType features. All the weights contain small caps, proportial figures,
old style figures, tabular figures, ligatures and stylistic alternates.

Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-05-21 16:39:07 UTC
Seems I'm a slacker at heart. Sorry for the delay. Anyway:

1. the source is in macosx zip format. Since the people in charge of rpm and unzip refused to fix their support for osx zip archives, you need to perform the un-zipping manually to avoid leaving a stray __MACOSX directory behind in the build root (annoys people doing full-distro rebuilds). Use something like:

%setup -q -c -T
unzip -j -L -q %{SOURCE0}

(the gfs font packages have the same problem)

2. Microsoft considers faces in modern font families should only differ on weight, width or slope) and a lot of software is confused by anything else. Therefore, the shadow face should be split in a woodardworks-laconic-shadow-fonts subpackage IMHO, making it a multi-family package.

3. the font is definitely sans-serif, your fontconfig file should declare it there

The rest of the packaging seems fine

Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-05-26 18:49:55 UTC
Behdad suggests the rules in the attached file for laconic shadow.

(20:31:14) behdad: nim-nim: yes.  in target="scan"
(20:31:16) behdad: I suggest:
(20:31:34) behdad: 1) in target="scan" append "LaconicShadow" as family name (not replace).
(20:31:56) behdad: humm.  then add LaconicShadow to decorative queue

…

(20:42:43) behdad: nim-nim: I believe so.  I never used target="scan" myself though...
(20:42:43) behdad: so test


The rest of the packaging is fine.
