DejaVu will include japanese glyphs when a glyph designer decides to
contribute them to the project (same way armenian, lao, etc happened).
Dejavu tries to do a good quality font - that means it does not coble
together glyphs of various origin and quality to achieve the widest
unicode coverage, but only merges stuff that is up to the quality level of
OTOH unlike other font projects DejaVu is not limited to any particular
region of the world. Any submission up to the font standards will be
merged, even if it covers unicode blocks totally different from the ones
currently worked on.
One first step is to open an entry in DejaVu bugzilla to register your
interest in japanese glyphs (to be honest we know people would like
japanese but it's an awful lot of glyphs so just opening an entry is not
likely to lead to quick japanese support)
What could lead to quick japanese support is if you could ask some
japanese designers to contribute to the project (we do prefer
internationnal glyphs to be done by local people that know local
style/typographical conventions). They do not need to be professionnal
designers BTW - dejavu tooling is 100% FLOSS and available in major
distribution so anyone with some art sense and free time can contribute
new glyphs (art/CS students, etc). Some of the major DejaVu contributors
