Nice to see you packaging some fonts again.


1. (nitpick) the exact term for "accent marks" is diactritics (includes stuff
like cedilla which is not strictly speaking an accent mark)

2. repo-font-audit found some partial coverage, and that rpmlint is not
completely happy with the font (to relay upstream, see attached archive)

3. (nitpick) you don't really need to define a common_desc when there's only
one package produced. It's useful for multi-subpackages

4. Please check with upstream they'll actually increment the version next time
the font is updated. If 1.000 is an eternal unchanging version, using the
timestamp of the font file as version is more useful.

5. You forgot the
Requires:       fontpackages-filesystem
⇒ fails review :(

6. Not too sure looping on one fontconf file is useful

7. Maybe it would be a good idea to bundle the licensing email as %doc ? Some
old font packages did this and it's invaluable when all the web references have
moved 20 times since packaging

8. There is no licensing info, either as detached txt file, or as metadata in
the font (just confirming your finds). Doing both is best

9. This is not really a general-purpose sans-serif font, please change your
fontconfig file
(see /usr/share/fontconfig/templates/fontconfig-generics.txt and
/usr/share/fontconfig/templates/basic-font-template.* )

⇒ Needs a little more work, even though it's already a pretty nice srpm
