This bug has been filed because we've detected your package includes one or
several font files: repoquery -C --repoid=rawhide -f '*.ttf' -f '*.otf' -f
'*.pfb' -f '*.pfa' --qf='%{SOURCERPM}\n' |sed -e
's+-[0-9.-]*\.fc[123456789]\(.*\)src.rpm++g'|sort|uniq Unfortunately the script
does not detect symlinks to other packages, so if that's your case, you can
close this bug report now. Otherwise, you should know that: \n \n \n - Fedora
guidelines demand the packaging of fonts in a separate package or   subpackage:
- our font packaging guidelines recently changed, and every package that ships 
 fonts must be adapted to the new templates available in the fontpackages-devel
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fonts_spec_template_for_multiple_fonts Please
make your package conform to the current guidelines in rawhide.If your package
is not principaly a font package, depending on a separate font package or
subpackage is the prefered solution. If your application does not use
fontconfig you can always package symlinks to the files provided by the font
package and installed in the correct fontconfig directories. It is preferred to
make a font package or subpackage per font family, though it is not currently a
hard guidelines requirement (it may become before Fedora 11 is released). The
definition of a font family is given on
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fonts_spec_template_notes/font-family The new
templates should make the creation of font subpackages easy and safe. The
following packages have already been converted and can serve as examples: -
andika-fonts - apanov-heuristica-fonts - bitstream-vera-fonts - charis-fonts -
dejavu-fonts - ecolier-court-fonts - edrip-fonts - gfs-ambrosia-fonts -
gfs-artemisia-fonts - gfs-baskerville-fonts - gfs-bodoni-classic-fonts -
gfs-bodoni-fonts - gfs-complutum-fonts - gfs-didot-classic-fonts -
gfs-didot-fonts - gfs-eustace-fonts - gfs-fleischman-fonts - gfs-garaldus-fonts
- gfs-gazis-fonts - gfs-jackson-fonts - gfs-neohellenic-fonts -
gfs-nicefore-fonts - gfs-olga-fonts - gfs-porson-fonts - gfs-solomos-fonts -
gfs-theokritos-fonts - stix-fonts - yanone-kaffeesatz-fonts If you have any
remaining questions about the new guidelines please ask them on
