First I should apologize for not discussing this more widely earlier, but
in the i18n subproject we recently suggested and requested that there
should be a generic 'Fonts' component in bugzilla for Fedora since we often
see various generic fonts bugs which take time to determine and resolve and
would easily get lost in the broad 'distribution' component.
See https://pagure.io/i18n/issue/124 and
https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/issue/9368 for more background.
Currently i18n-bugs is the primary assignee and fonts-bugs is in auto-CC.
I think it can be used in two ways - primarily (long term) for distro wide
fonts issues that are not bugs of a particular component (eg discussions on
changing default fonts, etc) - possibly triaged from some font component,
and secondly when users have no idea what component to file fonts issues
under, which then would need to be triaged to a particular font package.
I don't think we will see a huge number of bugs under this component but it
should be useful for tracking longer term issues and problems. If this also
helps to encourage Fonts SIG activity that would also be a good thing.
Currently the pt-sans-fonts package is installed by default as part of the
@fonts yum group.
However as far as I can tell, e.g. looking at
https://tagoh.fedorapeople.org/fonts/status/34.html the font is not used by
default for any of our locales.
Therefore unless there is a strong reason to keep it pre-installed I would
like to propose dropping pt-sans-fonts from @fonts in F35. Obviously we
still have Cyrillic coverage provided by deja-sans-fonts. Any feedback on
this? Note also that langpacks-ru pulls in pt-sans-fonts.
