Todo List: remove unneeded fontconfig and xorg-mkfontscale dependencies from font packages

2020-06-26 - Eli Schwartz

These packages only provide font data files, but depend on programs that make use of the fonts. This is a legacy of the pre-hook days, when each package included a post_upgrade scriptlet that ensured the fontconfig/xorg cache was rebuilt.

The dependencies should be removed, and if/when the fontconfig or xorg-mkfontscale packages are installed, they will build the entire font cache from scratch.

Be sure to also remove the xorg-font-utils dummy package if it is still a dependency.
