> Ok, I'll take this review
> 1. Please do not use 69bonvenocf-fonts as package name. Use bonvenocf-fonts or
> cf-bonveno-fonts (cf-bonveno-fonts is probably better as it will give you a
> Crude Factory prefix to use with other Crude Factory fonts)
> 2. Please use install -dm 755 instead of mkdir as suggested by the official
> spec template
> 3. You can remove the "for example" comment
> 4. 69 is a bit low as fontconfig prefix, 64 is probably sufficient for a latin
> font
> 5. Use 1.1 as version since upstream provides a nicely versionned archive
> 6. Since upstream provides sfd sources, please build the ttf from source using
> fontforge. You have an example of sfd building in bug #467507 for example
> 7. the font is GPLv2 + font exception (cf README)
> 8. Why do you want to disable hinting for this font?
> 9. Why do you want to prepend en to the font?
> 10. Please reformat your xml files with xmllint --format before submission so
> they are nicely indented with the same rules as other font packages
> 11. When you've written fontconfig rules you're happy with it's always a good
> idea to send them upstream to be included in the font next releases
> 12. Please fine a way to add Barry Schwartz' name in the summary (flattering
> font designers is good for our interactions with them)
> 14. Please update http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BonvenoCF_font to remove the
> font from the wishlist (change the Catzgorization). You should not need
> packaging powers to do that, just a FAS account
> All in all, that's not too bad an attempt for a first font package. Fix all
> this, and I'll sponsor you if that's still needed
