--- Comment #33 from Jason Tibbitts <tibbs(a)math.uh.edu> ---
So I see this is still pending and I'm not completely sure why.
I understand that there's a desire to have these built from source, which
requires some additional dependencies. However, fonts are considered by Fedora
to be "content" and are explicitly listed as content:
The font-specific packaging guidelines mention that they should be compiled
from source because most of the time they are buildable with free, packaged
software and the existence of bytecode hinting engines does get close to the
line of what might start looking like something which isn't content. However,
it's just a "should", and lack of software needed to build it is a pretty
reason to violate one of those.
If anything I'd hope that the hack fonts could be imported now while work is
ongoing to package the dependencies. In the future this package could switch
over to building from source.
If the guidelines on this are confusing then I will be happy to work to get
them changed to be less confusing.
