The following comments are intended to help new packagers understand the Fedora official fonts spec templates:

  • our simple template, intended for source packages that ship a single font family,
  • our multi template, intended for source packages that ship several different font families


Replace <FONTNAME> with something appropriate such as foundryname-fontname. For Fedora purposes a “foundry” is an entity that publishes a set of fonts with consistent QA rules[1].

If fontname already includes the font or fonts affix, drop it.


  1. Thus Sourceforge is not a foundry
