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