Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2001-10-18 11:22:19 EDT
Obvious question: why are the fonts in the blacklist? Surely someone had a
reason for that.
Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2001-10-19 02:52:56 EDT
AFAIK those entries has existed in the black lists since it was made. I'm not
sure it seems that they thought they aren't useful. However it has motion which
corrects it because the fonts using XLFD which is not much desirable existed
mostly. so I think that list should be fixed.
Comment 4 Preston Brown 2001-11-01 11:59:58 EST
fixing in eel-1.0.2-2.
Comment 5 Preston Brown 2001-11-01 12:34:25 EST
fixed in an upcoming errata.
Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2001-11-01 13:55:35 EST
From Darin:

  Ramiro added the blacklist because of bugs that happened with bad fonts. I
  don't know what was bad about the fonts, but I remember that the bugs
  included both crashing problems and incorrect display of various types.

  I've never thought that recognizing these "bad fonts" by name was a good
  idea. But I also have no idea what might go wrong if we don't filter them

I forgot to ask him about this earlier, sorry... given the vagueness we should
probably just try removing the fonts from the blacklist and see if it breaks.

eel-devel-1.0.2-2 should be pushed out too, otherwise someone who installed both
eel and eel-devel won't be able to update eel, because eel-devel-1.0.1 requires
eel = 1.0.1.
Comment 8 Preston Brown 2001-11-08 09:28:23 EST
eel-devel is now included.
Comment 9 Bryan Headley 2001-11-08 11:19:02 EST
11/8/2001 - Have not seen eel-devel-1.0.2-2 shipped out yet. Made by rebuilding
srpms file.
