First review:

1. W: file-not-utf8
⇒ please use iconv to fix this file's encoding (you have an example in sil
andika, make sure you've the right source encoding though)

2. please use lowercase package naming only as requested by the fonts packaging

3. please add the oflb- foundry prefix to the package name

4. unless the fonts authors asked you to, I don't thing the -sfd postfix is
really needed

5. your URL does not work

6. it seems upstreams versions this font properly, so you can use a real
version instead of a timestamp (current is 1.1)

7. I'd drop the first § of your description

8. the font is derived from a GPL font so it must stay GPL. Upstream has
already fixed this in its last release (do not forget to update your %doc)

9. Be very careful to use the exact name the font declares in your fontconfig
file. For version 1.1, it will be "NotCourierSans"

10. since the fonts are missing an italic face, I wouldn't stack them at 60 in
fontconfig, 61 or 62 would be better

Anyway that's all for now, thank you for continuing to package Fedora fonts
