Looks good to me too.

I would personally prefer

tex-cm-lgc

for the TeX specific stuff. It is not consistent with the srpm name
but it is consistent with the upstream (CTAN) package name, and it seems 
to me that it would be more consistent with non font tex pacakge names, 
and easier for user if it is called that way instead of ctan-cm-lgc-tex,
or ctan-cm-lgc-fonts-tex. tex-cm-lgc-fonts would also be possible, but
I would prefer using simply the CTAN package name. Unfortunatly, in 
that case, the .sty is called cmlgc.sty and not cm-lgc.sty, but it is
still closer to the package name.

Also there may be TeX packages that also have fonts, but consist mainly 
in tex stuff, in that case, I think that the srpm could be called 
tex-some-package
though the font parts should still be called
ctan-some-package-fonts-common
ctan-some-package-fonts-roman
...
