1. Remove rm -fr %{buildroot} in %install

2. Remove %clean section

3. Make should be with smp flags if possible.(parallel build)

Comment 2 Sean Burke 2013-09-08 02:56:49 UTC
I have updated the spec and SRPM accordingly. I have also uploaded a patch, available at, which fixes some issues in the build that I had missed earlier.

Comment 3 Jamie Nguyen 2013-09-09 11:05:12 UTC
Hi Sean! DISCLAIMER: I'm not a sponsor.

It's good practice to bump the Release tag and add a new %changelog entry when fixing things in your spec/srpm, and then post new links to your spec/srpm. Reviewers can then compare junicode-fonts-0.7.8-1 and junicode-fonts-0.7.8-2, or glance at %changelog to see how the spec has progressed.

I'm not that familiar with font packaging, but the package looks good to me. 

rpmlint returns no warnings:

  $ rpmlint *.rpm
  2 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

Metadata appears correct:

Good luck finding a sponsor!

Thank you for the feedback. If desired, I can return the linked files to the first revision and provide new links for the new versions.

Comment 5 Christopher Meng 2013-12-05 08:05:30 UTC
Have you found a sponsor yet?

Comment 6 Paul Flo Williams 2013-12-05 15:25:20 UTC
Please consider adding

BuildRequires: ttfautohint

The Makefile looks for this but doesn't complain if it isn't found.

Comment 7 Christopher Meng 2014-02-20 08:46:03 UTC

Any news here?


Comment 8 Sean Burke 2014-02-21 06:07:27 UTC
I've updated the spec to require ttfautohint and to fix the build when it is used, as its options have changed since the Makefile was last updated.

Spec URL:

I have not yet found a sponsor. I will attempt to do so.

Comment 9 Christopher Meng 2014-02-21 06:14:54 UTC
Yes, I hope you can find a sponsor quickly:

I have not see any activity by the submitter using his FAS in datagrepper output in Fedora project.

 you still want to continue packaging of this?
