Parabola build routines declares individual docx source files as additional sources in its rpms metadata.

Debian cannot use plain files as sources (only tarballs), so we need another approach.

Also, while Parabola addresses the reported issue of non-free fonts, the docx files embed images generated from other sources, which should be included and used instead.


  • Minimal solution: Rebuild openexr suppressing build of binary package openexr-doc.
  • Better solution: Include sources for both documents and their images, and generate documentation from that.
