Update fontforge in EL-5
Last modified: 2012-09-21 16:54:27 EDT
I need to update moodle to 1.9.x. This requires the updated dejavu-fonts to prevent font bundling. To build that, I need fontforge to be at least 20080429, and it's currently at 20061025.
Do you see any issues with this? If not, I'm also willing to do the update myself.
Well, the danger is that some fonts built with the current version will no longer (re)build...
but it's a pretty low danger. I'd say announce it on the epel-devel list and make sure it's in testing for a extra long while?
I'd imagine if that's the case they've since been fixed for Fedora, so I think that's probably reasonable. Should I just go to 20080429, to be on the safe side, or further?
Yeah, but then it means they have to update in epel5 too... perhaps a note on the fonts list would be good, just as a heads up.
If you're going to update it might try the latest... if that fails to build go back some more?
True. I'll experiment a bit before committing. A long stint in -testing is certainly called for.
Going well, but I need autotrace. Peter, if I create an EL-5 branch of autotrace, do you want to own, or be a comaintainer, or nothing at all?

Unfortunately I don't have much time to spend on any non-Erlang packages right now. So just add me to the cc list and don't forget to merge good stuff back into Rawhide (if any).
