Description Göran Uddeborg 2012-05-05 09:45:45 UTC
Description of problem:
According to yum, the URL for fontmatrix is http://www.fontmatrix.net/  But when I go to that page I get one of those silly advertising sites you may come to nowdays when a domain has been removed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. firefox http://www.fontmatrix.net/
Actual results:
Silly advertising site

Expected results:
fontmatrix' home page

Additional info:
According to Wikipedia, the current home page is http://oep-h.com/fontmatrix/ and visiting it, it looks correct.

I have marked URL as a comment. I see http://oep-h.com/fontmatrix/ is also not the correct page. It contains almost all the links broken.

Comment 2 Parag Nemade 2012-05-10 09:20:34 UTC
Fixed in rawhide fontmatrix-0.9.99-5.r1218.fc18

Fontmatrix upstream moved to Github in July 2012:

So then you'll put that URL in the next RPM package, Parag?  Or do you want a second bugzilla?

Comment 5 Parag Nemade 2013-01-09 03:59:26 UTC
I will fix this in next release
