I think those packages whose spec's need to be re-written should block
F14Target and volunteer's are welcome to post patches/fix them.
Recently I come across few packages which need to follow current fonts
packaging guidelines. I start working on those but found is almost broken and for those fonts it is
upstream. I am now searching those fonts if have some other publisher.
If i will find any other foundry then will use and import it in Fedora
otherwise my suggestion will be to retire those packages whose
upstream are gone now.
