Description Adam Jackson 2012-08-28 19:35:39 EDT
pango's libXft backend is deprecated upstream (though not well-documented as such atm), generally in favor of pangocairo.  F17 stats:

$ repoquery --qf=%{name} --whatrequires 'libpangoxft-1.0.so.0()(64bit)' | sort -u | wc -l
$ repoquery --qf=%{name} --whatrequires 'libpangocairo-1.0.so.0()(64bit)' | sort -u | wc -l

Given the upheaval over pangox's deprecation we should start moving things off pangoxft sooner than later.

Add Tracking keyword to avoid bug closure during Rawhide rebase process.
