Oh, and I forgot: your %description is missing a paragraph explaining
* the package is built with bytecode interpreter and subpixel rendering enabled
(see the freetype-freeworld blurb) and
* additional subpixel rendering patches from Ubuntu are being applied.
thank you for this. I would love to take over freetype-freeworld.
Now about the difference :
My idea was to have completely same experience as on Ubuntu Jaunty.
Because of that, i have dropped all the Fedora/Upstream patches and added those
from Ubuntu. I have used same sources of freetype/cairo/libXft as in Ubuntu
Jaunty as well.
Yes , the Fedora has subpixel rendering and bytecode interpreter patches, which
are enabled in freetype-freeworld. It works fine with my cairo, libXt as well,
but those patches are slightly different and final font rendering experience is
different - mainly visible when M$ fonts are used - fonts are missing some
If you will allow me to, I will rename those packages to have -freeworld suffix
and merge freetype-freeworld and my freetype-lcd according to your comments
I will create new requests per package as suggested in comment #3
Oh and of course I am about to provide screenshots for you all to see how
fedora loooks before / and after
