Description Gwyn Ciesla 2012-08-17 08:45:44 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.
Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2012-08-17 11:01:59 EDT
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?
Comment 2 Gwyn Ciesla 2012-08-17 11:08:50 EDT
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?
Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2012-08-17 13:26:42 EDT
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?
Comment 4 Gwyn Ciesla 2012-08-17 13:37:01 EDT
True.  I'll experiment a bit before committing.  A long stint in -testing is certainly called for.
Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2012-08-20 13:22:04 EDT
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).

Understood, thanks!
