Any chance of a Fedora 37 build?

Hey, yeah… attempted a rebuild but these specfiles are really old now so most builds failed. Looks like I gotta fork the Github repo as well to fix up some stuff with them. Some packages have been successfully built for F37 though so you can try them. Let me know how it works.

I disabled dawid/better_fonts repo. Then enabled gombosg-better_fonts, and did a “dnf up”.

It updated:


So I’ll use this for a couple of days and see how it goes.

I noticed that there are a few extras from dawid that haven’t been updated for a while, namely:

archivo-black-fonts - fc30
eb-garamond-fonts - fc30
komika-text-fonts - fc34
merriweather-fonts - fc30
merriweather-sans-fonts - fc30
passion-one-fonts - fc35
sorkintype-gelasio-fonts - fc35

Some of them are from F30 since last update. So was not surprised that they didn’t update.

Thanks for doing this man!
