I'm just trying to get Bug#492510 fixed and noticed that
Simple priority list in the fontconfig conf that each font
packages has and the priority lists in *-non-latin.conf
etc breaks the order of the fonts when running under
non-native locale (in that case displaying Japanese on en_US
locale). How it breaks.. well, the markup to override the
language information nor overriding fallback fonts rules
with PANGO_LANGUAGE doesn't work. once removing the priority
lists it works again.
So I'd suggest adding a font in the language-specific rules
rather than having the priority list.
Any comments are welcome.
I've just been assigned a bug report on a font package I maintain in Fedora .
>From my understanding, the bug is in the TTF file itself.
I'm not very familiar with fonts (I took over this package as it was
orphaned and needed by the fedora-olpc effort), so I don't really know
how I should proceed to fix it.
Is there a way for me to patch the TTF file ? Does this belong
upstream, so I should report it to the font developer ?
Any hint would be greatly appreciated.

In the past we have been reluctant to update fontforge in stable
releases. The reason for this is that an update could cause a font to
no longer build for some reason and then we would have no way to
provide updates to that font. ;(
However, there seem to be some issues with the current F10 fontforge,
so I would like to open discussion on updating there.
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=462038 for some
discussion of this.
We could likely add libspiro, pango/cairo support in an update if we
wanted to as well.
Anyone have any thoughts about doing this update in F10?
