Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 525866
Please rebuild using external Adobe CMap and AGLFN data
Last modified: 2015-02-02 03:13:17 EST
Description of problem:
The Debian fonttool packager noticed a problem in fonttool's embedded Adobe CMap and AGLFN data and got Adobe to release them under a good license
Please rebuild the Fedora fonttool using those resources (packaged separately as they can be used by other packages)
FE-LEGAL since this was all triggered by a legal checl Debian-side
I'm not sure why this blocks FE-Legal. There is no reason why this change cannot (and should not) occur. Lifting FE-Legal.

Well, it was more "Debian feels not doing this is a legal problem, do we think the same?"
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.
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 13'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 13 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:
Here is the upstream bug about this:
I assume we have this fixed already in https://github.com/behdad/fonttools/commit/fea81ee2b3d820cf6beee40fa8ec95a0cfa99214
Incorrect the Google fork of fonttools still contains an embedded copy of the the aglfn data:
That first link should be this instead:
In addition, the copy in fonttools is outdated compared to upstream.
Actually it isn't outdated, but will become so if Adobe ever releases a new version.
Okay let me open this and I will check this with behdad when he will be back later on.
