Could go the route of being similar to a kernel dkms or adkmod rebuilt at
runtime similar to thorsten's suggestions in comment #5
The rpm payload would include the unmodified font sources, and installing would
store them on local disk somewhere, and %post scriptlet would do the heavy
lifting of unpacking and installing the fonts for use.
and per the wikipedia article
"Reproduction and Distribution. You may reproduce and distribute an unlimited
number of copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT; provided that each copy shall be a
true and complete copy, including all copyright and trademark notices, and
shall be accompanied by a copy of this EULA."
So, as long as a copy of the EULA is included... this requirement may be
(Not sure what "accompanied by a copy of this EULA" means legally, though to
untrained eye, doesn't seem to require that it be forcefully shown to the user
to agree to...).
from what i've seen, the rpm may not contain the fonts. not if it is
distributed on the internet. there are a number of rpmbuild spec files that
generate rpm files that contain the fonts. these generated rpm files however,
may only be distributed internally, or for offline use. At least in
jurisdictions respecting the microsoft eula.
the ubuntu version of this does make you look at the eula. it didn't used to,
but apparently microsoft complained about it. on the other hand, this deb is
part of core ubuntu. anything on rpmfusion wouldn't necessarily be made part
of core fedora, so it might not draw the attention of microsoft legal.
