Taking tentative first steps at getting involved in fonts on Fedora. At the moment, that means resurrecting some of my old ones and learning the new tools.
|600108||20100501-1.fc13||serafettin ftbfs||expand stroke issue. reduced, filed upstream. wrong in cvs head (last checked 2010-07-15). Now produced list of all failing glyphs. This is largely a problem with the font, which has big validation problems. TODO: send one line patch to LineJoin() upstream.|
|608477||20090923-3.fc13||Rendering after OKing Grid Fit Parameters dialog crashes in FT_ConicTo()||Can't reproduce, despite trying perverse settings in dialog. Not a freetype-freeworld issue, as that wasn't installed (so not BCI). Puzzled.|
|610026||20090923-3.fc13||FVMetricsCenter()||had a go, couldn't reproduce but encountered another bug in same area. filed upstream. TODO: Produce patch for 20090923 and attach|
20100501 build from upstream is in Rawhide and a scratch build is available for F13. Currently, the new work on expand stroke in 20100501 causes serafettin-cartoon-fonts to FTBFS, or that would be a good candidate for upgrading F13.
608477 is puzzling because the backtrace is clear. Digging in fontforge-devel archives suggests that the Freetype rendering used here has previously (2007-08-05) caused problems because an internal API is being used. Caused problems when going to FT 2.3.5. Now we're on FT 2.3.11, has this bitten again? Seems this was to do with debugging TrueType hinting, so may not apply.
