You basically need to tell fontconfig in the Gentium package "if something asks
for Gentium Basic, use Gentium if it's not available" and the reverse in the
other package. Plus tell fontconfig it's a serif package.

Like I wrote that's the same magic we do for dejavu full and dejavu lgc, just
look at their fontconfig files and copy the  dejavu full to dejavu lgc rules
(replacing with gentium and gentium basic)

Don't bother about F-8, it's better to have a good devel package and worry
afterwards of previous distros. At this rate F-8 will be EOL-ed before you have
any package in the distro :(
