Thank you for looking at it. I improved both summary and description a
bit - so it's (more or less) perfect now ;)

That's clear but I didn't know how the group is called now.

Well, created an archive for it. Now my next question is how to handle
this in the spec-file:

#URL of the font, not the download
#Path to the archive I created
Source0:        %{archivename}.tar.gz
#Path to the fontconf file
Source1:        %{name}-fontconfig.conf

Should I create a Source2 field with the URL of the download or
introduce a URL2 field?
