cursive (7 variants that need to be sorted)

[edit] Caveats

  1. Complete description need to be take either from the Debian package or by translating the Spanish one in the font metadata
  2. Upstream needs to be contacted to add the FSF font exception to their GPL licensing
  3. Depending if the 7 variants map to the WWS font classification model or not, this may require several subpackages
  4. May be easier to package for a Spanish speaker
  5. Need to check with the author if he prefers the “linex” or “jjm” prefix
  6. Need to check with the author if we can use a more convenient upstream than a svn repository.


[edit] Additional information

  1. Fonts created specifically for the gnuLinEx distribution (Debian derivative used by some Spanish regions in schools). Needed for parity with Debian.
  2. Please do not package the whole font set in a single srpm: use one srpm for Abecedario, one for Elegante, etc

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.
