I'll do the same offer I made a few years ago. Any of those who package
bits that use core fonts step up to write packaging guidelines for core
fonts, to do the merge reviews on the associated packages, and generally
speaking to become the core fonts guy (or gal) in Fedora, can ask me to
whitelist all the core font packages he wants or even to shut down this
test completely.

If no one is ready to do that, and is happy to continue to have me do
this part because its "fonts" and by default "the fonts sig does fonts",
should be happy it costs him only a few annoying mails that state I
don't like it one bit.
