help with updating fontpackages

Hi Nicolas,

    I am planning to clean the spec file and source code to follow
current fedora packaging guidelines and update fontpackages in Fedora
22. I see that application to gitfontpackages requires applicant to
provide his contributions. As per this requirement, I have sent you an
email already.

Can you give me commit access to gitfontpackages repository.

Regards,
Parag.

Is anyone packaging Comic Neue ?

Hi,
I would like to get a free version of Comic into Fedora.

I looked at HVD Comic Serif. [1][2] It looks like it wasn't put in
Fedora because it's readme.txt has both the Creative Commons Attribution
3.0 Unported License and a bunch of freehand "though shalt" stuff at the
beginning.
Plus, that font has not been touched since 2009 (including the
problematic readme file)
Anyway, I don't see that making it into Fedora.

So, I was thinking of packaging Comic Neue [3], which is licensed until
the SIL Open Font License.  It is being actively maintained, and I think
would be a good addition to Fedora.

And, so my question.  Is anyone packaging Comic Neue up already?
If not, I'll give it a try.
I haven't ever packaged a font, but I'm more than willing to learn.  The
templates certainly look helpful.

Thanks
Troy Dawson

[Announce] Next improved release of Lohit Devanagari 2.95.0 with Latin and ttfautohinted.

    Last release of Lohit Devanagari we did in Feb 19, 2014. During the time number of improvements happened in Lohit Devanagari. Today releasing its next version with all the improvements. [1]

    Following are the improvements:
    1. Added Latin from https://github.com/etunni/lohit-latin
            Yes, This happened :)
            I would like to thanks Dave for this, who helped to get Latin for Devanagari done from  Eduardo Rodriguez Tunni. Now one will not feel major difference while rendering of Lohit Devanagari text with Latin since Lohit has Latin coverage itself.

    2. One of the requirement of ttfautohint is to have Latin support in fonts. (AFAIK) Due to this we were not using ttfautohint for building Lohit Devanagari. Now since we have Latin in Lohit Devanagari, we have started building ttf with ttfautohint. It means Lohit Devanagari now requires ttfautohint as a build requirement.

    2. We started compiling feature file with Adobe font development kit. (AFDKO).
            As announced earlier as well.
            Feature file of Lohit Devanagari was not compiling in OTM. [2] Root cause of problem was fontforge is bit relax while validating feature file. Had good discussion with Dave and Frank on this and finally we decided to compile feature file with AFDKO. [3]

            This also helped us to futher identified issues in feature file and we fixed those issues in feature file.

    3. Updated sfd file with resolved issues regarding marathi locale (issue id on github: #46,#47)
            These were local related issues not tested well earlier.

    4. Improved Vedic accent positioning issues. Resolves issue #https://github.com/pravins/lohit2/issues/11

    5. Added new characters uni1cf5 and uni1cf6

    Looking forward for Dave's more support to add Latin in all Lohit script fonts. Enjoy improved version of Lohit Devanagari.  Please report if any issues at github [4]. I have updated fedorahosted.org/lohit [5] page with download details

    I want to verify Lohit Devanagari with Hindi script grammer [6] and make sure it follows all rules. Soon i am going to ping some linguist who can help into this.

Cheers,
Pravin Satpute

PT Serif and PT Mono fonts packaging

Hi,

I'd like to maintain/co-maintain PT Serif[1] and PT Mono[2] fonts by
paratype. Would it be better to include them in the existing PT
Sans[3] fonts package - incorporate in the same spec as multiple
packages, or as individual specs?

Here's the altered spec file[4] and srpm[5] combining all 3 paratype
fonts. (Note the hack in %prep phase due to source packages containing
same file names). What do you think?

[1] http://www.paratype.com/uni/public/PTSerif.zip
[2] http://www.paratype.com/uni/public/PTMono.zip
[3] https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/package/paratype-pt-sans-fonts/
[4] https://rajeeshknambiar.fedorapeople.org/spec/paratype-pt-fonts.spec
[5] https://rajeeshknambiar.fedorapeople.org/srpm/paratype-pt-fonts-20111230-1.fc20.src.rpm

umefonts


Hi.

I've just added a new fonts request onto the wishlist:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ume_fonts

I'm planning to package it myself, unless someone else is interested, 
however as I am no font expert I'd appreciate some mentoring ...

I want to have these fonts packages to help with proper packaging of UFO:AI 
(bz#1157255).

K.

Kinda. I think fontconfig files are a very good idea to be mandatory,
so they actually work when installed. We *don't* want all fonts to
have MetaInfo files however; some fonts are poor quality or only
contain some glyphs (e.g. the Ubuntu title font) and we don't want to
show those.

Does this means only a subset of packages will be accessible via gnome-software and for other users need to do dnf search/install?

User will not see particular font unless until he search. I think good to allow all and let user decide which is good quality and which is not.

Pravin Satpute

Showing fonts in GNOME Software

Hi all,

I wanted to decentralize the storage of font metadata used in
gnome-software. I would be appreciative of any comments to this
article: http://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2014/10/15/gnome-software-and-fonts/
-- Once any big issues are ironed out, I'll send that to
devel <at> fedoraproject for comments.

Thanks,

Richard.

FF doesn't show the pound sign - what component do I file a bug against?

Hi,

I just visited a site and FF didn't show the pound sign. Would anyone
know what causes this? Is it a missing font, or a FF bug, or another
bug?
