I also found this:
and they're called urw-core35-fonts here. It might be wise to ask
upstream to clarify before choosing the new package name.
OK, will do.
I'm not sure where your Version == 1.0 comes from. If they're versioned
only by date now, then you have two options. Use Version: 0 in the
package in anticipation of upstream eventually reintroducing semantic
versioning. Or, Version: YYYYMMDD. Admittedly, the latter looks nicer
and upstream already said they'll stick to it.
The Version == 1.0 comes from the source code of the fonts themselves.
Running 'grep "Version" *.afm' tells me that there are all files with
Version == 1.0, except two of them (which have Version
If you worry about upstream versioning sanity, then stick with
and follow the snapshot versioning guidelines.

The exact location of the source doesn't matter too much as long as it's
official and pristine. I agree it might be better to use the git repo
directly since it contains both the licence indication and its full
Upstream has heard to my request and fixed it. (
And yes, what Douhlas wrote is correct (about the 35 fonts), and I will
have that noted in the %description section.
Anyway, since determining the Version field is still unclear, I think the
most sense to me right now is to proceed with option 2) - IOW - to bypass
the versioning from URW++ completely, and have Version field based on
snapshot string, in a way:
X.Y.Z == YYYY.MM.DD
Or do you some problem with this approach?
