Would you please refrain from spreading the same user bashing in yet another

This bug is specifically for documenting the need for a transition from type1
fonts to opentype fonts and the tools in Fedora (or absence thereof) to do so.

You seem to claim there is no way to convert type1 fonts to opentype. Do I
understand that correctly? In this case, the lack of type1 font support in
Fedora 31 (which comes at no surprise to you) is something that needs to be
documented, like any major incompatible change in functionality, surprising to
some or not.
