No, it has nothing to do with the repo. It has everything to do with the upstream developer. The Indic fonts package is originally a Slackware package. Sadly, while I did build the package I do not speak or read any Indian language so I had no way to know whether or not there are any issues with the fonts. It's in testing so that someone like you could tell us if it is a good package or not. I take it that it is NOT a good package. Is that correct?
