Detailed Description

Lohit fonts upstream is going to change two fonts name. Font name changes and detailed information is as follows

Lohit Oriya to Lohit Odia:

Odia language name was improperly translated and written as a Oriya. This has been corrected by Government of India in 2011 and it is called as a Odia now. Reference for same http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/parliament-passes-bill-to-change-orissa-s-name-93888. Discussion regarding same happened in Lohit fonts upstream http://www.redhat.com/archives/lohit-devel-list/2013-December/msg00001.html and it has been decided to change Lohit Oriya fonts name to Lohit Odia.

Lohit Punjabi to Lohit Gurmukhi:

Punjabi is a language and written by two script Arabic and Gurmukhi. Generic font name like Punjabi often create confusion whether this font is belonged to writing Punjabi in Arabic script or Gurmukhi script. It has become important to change font name from Lohit Punjabi to Lohit Gurmukhi. Lohit upstream has already accepted this change http://www.redhat.com/archives/lohit-devel-list/2013-December/msg00009.html and looks will release fonts with this name.

Benefit to Fedora

What is the benefit to the platform?

Fedora is leading distribution when it comes to Indian language. We are the first one to support internationalization of 22 Official Indian languages. We started supporting Indian Rupee symbol [₹] in very early stages. Lohit fonts are default font for Odia and Punjabi language in Fedora distribution. With this change Fedora distribution will follow Government guidelines regarding correct language name. Fedora will also remove confusion from user end regarding Punjabi script fonts.

If this is a major capability update, what has changed? If this is a new functionality, what capabilities does it bring?

With this update default fonts packages for Odia and Punjabi are going to Change. Users will need to install lohit-odia-fonts and lohit-gurmukhi-fonts package rather than lohit-oriya and lohit-punjabi-fonts. Users will also notice different font names in applications like gedit and libreoffice.

Why will Fedora become a better distribution or project because of this proposal? With the proposed change Fedora is going to follow Governmetn guidline for langauge and respecting Odia language community. Fedora it also removing confusion for punjabi user by clear stating Lohit as a Gurmukhi font rather than punjabi.
