* This template plays a huge part in the [[Font_package_lifecycle| lifecycle]] of our font packages.
+
* Our SIG [[Font_package_lifecycle| workflow]] is organised around wiki pages that adhere to this template.
* Use it to create « ''Name_Font'' » or « ''Name_Fonts'' » pages:
+
* The source of this page contains '''comments''' providing guidance to fill out each section. They are invisible in view mode.  To read them, choose the « Edit » tab.
** ''Name_Fonts'' should be « ''Foo_fonts'' » and not « ''FooFonts_fonts'' » or « ''FooFont_fonts'' ».
+
* Copy the source to a '''new page''' before making changes! '''Do not edit this template directly!'''}}
** use the ''Foundry Name'' convention if necessary (i.e « ''SIL_Abyssinica_fonts'' » good, « ''Abyssinica_SIL_fonts'' » bad).
+
* Frames that use this style are '''redaction tips'''. Please remove them from your page once they are no longer necessary. Do the same for the ''lorem ipsum'' bits.
+
* Remember the more complete and accurate the information you add is, the more likely a font is to be packaged and widely used.
+
* Do not forget to update the page categorization once the font status changes.

  — use the « Foundry Name » convention if necessary.

  ⇒ See also Packaging:FontsPolicy#Naming we try to follow the same conventions for our wiki pages.

◆ Please remove the « lorem ipsum » filers once they are no longer necessary. Do the same for those comments.

◆ Do not forget to update the page categorization each time the font described in this page passes one packaging step.

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.
