Read again.

As for your patch, I'm strongly against it.
1. you're introducing a common provides while making sure packagers had to take
into account the different fonts was an explicit packaging goal
2. as far as I understand, you're relying on undocumented yum behaviour the yum
developpers never committed to

If you want to change the way we package fonts, go the full public consultation
=> FPC review => FESCO review => months of QA like was done for F11
