Ok, more review:

1. Your URL metadata field should point to upstream's web site, not directly to
the zip (probably http://www.kavya-nandanam.com/dload.htm)

2. It would be better if upstream's added the exact text of the font exception
to its licensing file, as the FSF may release another wording someday and then
we won't know which one was intended. Though it's already good enough for
packaging IMHO.

3. It would be better if upstream used "Regular" or "Normal" as style, most
apps won't know what to do with a "Pothana2000" style (I suspect it's the
"preferred OTF style" metadata in fontforge ; also opening the font in
fontforge results in many warnings)

4. You can drop the "%dir %{_fontdir}" line

5. rpmlint warns of
pothana2000-fonts.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 36, tab:
line 40)

6. 69 should be safe for now. You need to discuss with the packagers of other
Telugu fonts in Fedora to decide in common what the best priority should be for
this font

Anyway nothing blocking here, so I'll approve the package as-is but do try to
fix those little problems

⇮⇮⇮ APPROVED ⇮⇮⇮

You can now continue from

Thank you for packaging a new Fedora font
