[Fedora-packaging] font package naming



Hi,

I would like to propose adding the following text to our
"Package Naming Guidelines".
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines

'''
== Fonts Packages ==

Font packages should be named with the upstream name appended with `-fonts`.

Examples:
{{{
bitmap-fonts
dejavu-lgc-fonts
ghostscript-fonts
urw-fonts
xorg-x11-fonts
}}}

'''

Should the text discuss what to do when the upstream name contains the word "font" already?

See https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-maintainers/2007-February/msg00794.html and https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-maintainers/2007-March/msg00262.html for some recent discussion of <upstreamname>-fonts vs fonts-<language> and "-fonts" vs "-font" for singlet font packages.

Comments or objections?

Jens

ps We might even consider renaming some of our "fonts-*" packages to follow this naming scheme for F8.
