           Summary: Review Request: fonttools: A tool to convert

Spec Url: http://guava.farsiweb.info/~roozbeh/fonttools.spec
SRPM Url: http://guava.farsiweb.info/~roozbeh/fonttools-2.0-0.1.20060103cvs.src.rpm
Description:
TTX/FontTools is a tool for manipulating TrueType and OpenType fonts. It is
written in Python and has a BSD-style, open-source license. TTX can dump
TrueType and OpenType fonts to an XML-based text format and vice versa.

Additional notes:
1. The reason for this being a CVS version is that the upstream's latest release has been in September 2002, while the maintainer has continually referred to the CVS version for bugfixes since then.
2. I prefer to name the package "ttx" (the name of the only binary the package provides) instead of "fonttools", because "ttx" is the name most users know this by. I stayed with "fonttools" because the Extras naming policy leans toward upstream names, and also because SUSE ships it (the September 2002 version) under the name "fonttools".
3. This is practically a binary and a module. I don't think any other application uses the module, but if that's the case, I may be able to make this two packages, one named "ttx" and another named "python-fonttools", or if I can name the package "ttx", I can add a "Provides" of "python-fonttools".
