BTW it'd really be a little cleaner if there was a real makefile in the package, even if it only contains two lines to call generate.pe


is a standard interface people are used to and expect, and it will also give you parallelism when you have multiple files to process

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2009-09-11 08:55:06 UTC
cvs admin done

Comment 5 Pravin Satpute 2009-09-11 09:12:22 UTC
surely in next release of upstream i will do that, for all lohit language fonts

Comment 6 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-11 09:47:46 UTC
Thanks. Lohit distribution practices were a lot worse for years, so it's not an urgent thing to fix. I agree there's little harm in waiting to do it for next release

Another cleanup would be to host the lohit release tarballs in the fedorahosted project, a fedorapeople space is not very professional on our part

Comment 7 Pravin Satpute 2009-09-11 11:01:02 UTC
I have some lohit fixes in queue, once those will complete i will update other suggested things as well :)

Comment 8 Pravin Satpute 2009-09-11 11:37:00 UTC
