Package Name: lohit-tamil-fonts
Short Description: Free Tamil Open Type Font
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
cvs admin done
surely in next release of upstream i will do that, for all lohit language fonts
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
I have some lohit fixes in queue, once those will complete i will update other suggested things as well :)
Thanks Parag and Jens
