The "Arial" font being shipped originates from a third-party patch set[1] that 
aims for Netflix compatibility. It[2] uses the Liberation Sans font, calls it 
Arial, and ships it.

If there are legal concerns over the use of this font I will remove it.

Wine fonts

Hello,

As Wine co-maintainer I would like to open a discussion on the fonts that Wine 
includes. For those that do not know Wine[1] is a set of libraries that allows 
Windows executables to run under a Linux environment.

Wine includes several fonts in order to provide support that Windows programs 
expect to exist. Packages include:
- wine-arial-fonts
- wine-courier-fonts
- wine-fixedsys-fonts
- wine-marlett-fonts
- wine-ms-sans-serif
- wine-small-fonts
- wine-symbol-fonts
- wine-system-fonts
- wine-tahoma-fonts
- wine-tahoma-fonts-system
- wine-wingdings-fonts

These packages (exception of wine-tahoma-fonts) install fonts to 
/usr/share/fonts and affect rendering in applications that call upon these 
fonts. Users have complained[2][3] of rendering using these fonts. I do not 
experience poor rendering with these fonts so it is hard for me to sympathize, 
but I hate having open bugs that go unanswered.

Can the Fedora Font SIG provide guidance? Should Wine be installing to 
/usr/share/fonts?

Thanks,
Michael

Review Request: cwtex-q-fonts - a series of modern traditional Chinese fonts

Hi everyone,

I am interested in fonts/typography and learning rpm packaging recently. I found a series of free traditional Chinese fonts released under GPLv2+ license are not included in fedora repo yet, and decided to contribute myself.

I have filed a bug report[1] for my first font package, cwtex-q-fonts, and been waiting for a sponsor. I would like to contribute as the maintainer of cwtex-q-fonts package in the future too. Please help me walk through the process and tell me what to improve for the package. ;) I will appreciate that!

I have successfully built the package on koji. [2]

Thanks,

about the rename of nhn-* to naver-*

Hi,

I heard from the Debian package maintainer of nhn-nanum-fonts that the
font publisher has been split into several companies and the responsible
entity of the font is now known as Naver Corporation (one of their group
companies)[1].

As we used the previous company name as the foundry, I filed a rename
review[2].  However, since nhn-nanum-fonts is the default Korean font,
if we rename it, we will also need to modify comps, anaconda, etc.  So,
I'd rather not like to change the package name, if possible.  Is it okay
for this case?

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Pravin,

Thank you for your hard working on this change. I am not a font creator, and I don;t have much experience with font as well, but I am connecting Mr. Danh Hong, a Hanuman font creator in this conversation. 

Bong Danh Hong, here is the 3 issues that Pravin found and stop him to package your font into Fedora System instead of Khmer OS. 
2. http://code.google.com/p/khmermaemo/issues/detail?id=2
3. http://code.google.com/p/khmermaemo/issues/detail?id=3

Once you can answer to these issues, he will be able to package Hanuman to Fedoras as a built-in one. 

Thank you bong Danh hong for being in the loop.

Kindly regards,
Somvannda

Definitely we can do this.
It will be very helpful if you can give some screenshots for better understanding. Blog will be even better. Once your point is clear.
Process is
1. Package this font to Fedora (i can take this task)
2. Report bug against distribution with proper reasoning. (You can take this)

Please let me know if you have any question!

Fontconfig questions

Hi,

While packaging SimpleCV (#1070946), we found some included fonts that
are not yet available in Fedora. I am now on the process of packaging
them. I am currently focussing on Astloch font. Here is the fontconfig
file I created for review. I am not sure about the prefix. I guess that
61 is OK.

Bugzilla ticket: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1081782
Filename: 61-astloch-fonts.conf
File content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
  <alias>
    <family>Astloch</family>
    <prefer>
      <family>monospace</family>
    </prefer>
  </alias>
</fontconfig>

I also guess that I must create a wiki page about the font but I haven't
found any particular instructions in the wiki. Maybe a copy/paste +
adaptation of an existing page is OK?

Regards,
Julien Enselme

Web Interface for Font Compare

I was wanting to have a web interface for the font quality metric tool FontCompare, which I developed last summer. It is now a plugin for fontforge and I am maintaining it currently. I wished to know if it suited for a GSoC Summer Project Idea 2014 ?
