Comment 2 Josef Stribny 2013-05-28 14:07:26 UTC
Hi Anuj,

please take a look at the sources[1] as they contain fonts, which are in general not so straightforward to package. Have a look on how the shipment of fonts should be done in Fedora[2], also considering legal issues[3, 4].

It would be good to check whether we have those fonts packaged or not, consider linking them or packaging them separately accordingly.


Comment 3 Anuj More 2013-05-29 06:21:52 UTC
The fonts are covered under the SIL Open font license, which is a good license according to

Everything else is MIT.

The fonts have not been packaged (a simple search on reveals). So if the guidelines stress them being packaged separately, I probably should.

Comment 4 Josef Stribny 2013-05-29 12:11:07 UTC
Yes, please. It's sort of required by guidelines. Thanks.

Informal Package Review

As mentioned before, sources contain fonts. You could break this into different packages or link the fonts, See the links in the previous comments.

- Requires for rubygems are autogenerated, they are not needed here.
- Requires: ruby(release) is not needed and Requires: ruby(rubygems) is automatically generated
You want to remove all the requires from the spec file. Check [1] for reference.

If upstream does not provide a LICENSE text file, you should contact upstream and ask them to consider adding one. See [2] for reference.

It would be nice to mark the README file with %doc [3].

Is there any reason for skipping %check? Does upstream provide a test suite? If so, it would be nice to run it.
