Summary: Split up arabic-fonts package into three packages
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Minor
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other

The current arabic-fonts package is rather suboptimal, in that it:
* packages fonts by various authors (although of course, they all come from the
same download page – but it still is somewhat akin to packaging all of
Google's webfonts into the same package)
* one doesn't really see what is downloaded beforehand
* the download is needlessly large and one has needlessly many fonts installed,
when all one wanted was decent localisation support

So, I would propose to split this package up into:
* kacst-fonts (packaging everything developed by the Kacst institution)
* ae-fonts (seemingly developed by various companies)
* haydar-fonts (all bitmap-based)

Reproducible: Always
