Description Marek Kašík 2012-10-24 08:26:24 EDT
Description of problem:
License field of fontconfig should include also "Public Domain" and "UCD" identifiers.

Additional info:
See src/ftglue.{h,c} and src/fccache.c for Public Domain
and fc-case/CaseFolding.txt for Unicode Character Database.
Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2012-10-24 10:31:09 EDT
Actually, the unicode consortium files should be split in their own package instead of being bundled in fonctonfig, perl, etc

Sure. fontconfig uses CaseFolding.txt to generate fccase.h and shipping it in the archive because that file is differently generated on the cross-compiling. so it isn't necessarily needed in the archive to build. but I guess the generated code is still Public Domain right? I tend to agree to have a separate package for Unicode Character Database though, it would be another issue at this point.
