So, yes, this could very well go into the rpmfusion nonfree section, given some
work to make it comply with fedora's packaging guidelines.
I'm not sure if "some" is the right word here. My view:
* post scripts that put somewhere that are not tracked by rpm are a no go
(maybe /opt/ or /usr/local/ might be an exception, but I'm not even sure about
* a post script that long looks unacceptable to me, too
I'd say a better short term solution might be a rpm called
""msttcore-fonts-download-script" that contains a script the user has to
manually. That script then could do everything that is needed, as that makes it
way more obvious what's happening instead of abusing rpm (and it's pre and post
scripts) and kind of hiding what's really happening.
A proper long term solution might be extending akmods (or writing something
similar) that can download things, run a rpmbuild with a spec file that uses
those things and installs the resulting rpm afterwards.
All that of course: IMHO and YMMV
