[edit] FAD SCaLE Details

  • Date: Friday, February 20, 2009
  • Place: Midway Room, Mezzanine Level, Westin Los Angeles Airport
  • Time: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Note: A Fedora Birds of a Feather meeting will take place from 7-8 p.m. on Friday at the Midway Room -- either a continuation of work will or just a social hour will take place there

At the end of your participation in the FAD we are asking you to take the brief Post FAD survey for SCaLE 7x.

[edit] Activities

The items below will be going on from around 9am - 5pm. There will be breaks and such, but they are treated much like a sprint. We're here to get something accomplished so it may be longer, or shorter. Come on by and help us out for an hour or all day, we'd love to have you there!

[edit] Packaging of Fonts

A page of the Fonts Special Interest Group

There are approximately 50-75 fonts that are not packaged in Fedora. These fonts are generally easy to package and take about 30-60 minutes a piece. The expected amount of fonts to be packaged at the Font Packaging FAD will be around 10-15.

Some fonts we may be able to package

Font Who's Packaging
Banana Peels fonts Joseph Smidt
Rubbing fonts Jay Hankinson
Goody Bookletter 1911 fonts - There's actually 4 or 5 fonts from the crufty fonts list
Letters Laughing fonts Clint Savage
WoodardWorks Laconic fonts Corey Justin Chandler
the Dustin Norlander fonts not packaged in Fedora yet (Sven Lankes' two Dustin packages should provide good examples)

An updated spec template set has been built for F9 and F10, but may not have hit mirrors yet. In that case use the koji versions directly.

Fonts in Fedora
The Fonts SIG takes loving care of Fedora fonts. Please join this special interest group if you are interested in creating, improving, packaging, or just suggesting a font. Any help will be appreciated.

[edit] Documentation

The Fedora User Guide is developed on the wiki, edited in place, and prepared for conversion to DocBook XML. We are going to work on starting and completing chapters for the User Guide. Our goal is to make a significant dent in the User Guide tasks and possibly some of the project tasks.
