Description

  • fix for timezone bug, see http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do;?bug_id=6530336 for bug description and http://www.ibm.com/support/alerts/us/en/daylightsavingstimealert.html for ibm info
  • baselib.conf renamed to baselibs.conf to make things work
  • put baselib.conf in package directory as discussed in Bug #243782
  • update to 1.5.0_sr3 (feature#301577)
  • update to 1.5.0_sr2
  • changed version naming to ibm scheme (sr2)
  • repackage IBM tar.gz balls to tar.bz2
  • font.properties.SuSE.tar.gz:
    • added /usr/share/fonts/truetype to appendedfontpath in font.properties.{zh_CN,zh_HK,zh_TW}.SuSE; not sure if this helps since I think that font.properties.{zh_CN,zh_HK,zh_TW} is read instead; therefore question remains who is responsible to copy .{zh_CN,zh_HK,zh_TW}.SuSE to .{zh_CN,zh_HK,zh_TW} (maybe fonts-config?)
  • /usr/share/fonts is in filesystem package now, remove here
