A page of the Fonts Special Interest Group

In addition to Fedora's own Fonts special interest group:

  • the freedesktop.org text layout working group regularly publishes materials on present and future state of text rendering on FLOSS desktops. They're all a must-read.
  • Ed Trager maintains the very complete unifont web site.
  • the Open Font Library is an effort to host open fonts, though all may not be free enough for Fedora.
  • other distributions have fonts packaging projects, notably Debian and Ubuntu.
