Correct the proposal and replace it with the final package summary.


Description

Oski Dene is a member of the Oski Series of Unicode fonts. Oski is a Cree prefix meaning “New”, which reflects the modern look to the syllabics. There are several aspects which make this font specially suited for the Dene languages:

  • The syllabics are sized more proportionately.
  • Some of the syllabics shapes are in a more old-style.
  • The finals are sized and positioned appropriately.
  • There are OpenType tables that will position the finals properly. Any final followed by a superscript ² will be placed mid-line; any final followed by a superscript ³ will be placed at the base line.

This family contains specially made Italic, Bold, and Bold-Italic fonts, giving a much more attractive document than when a word-processor attempts to italicise a regular font.

This font conforms to the Chipewyan Dene syllabics writing system employed by the English Anglican missionaries.

It was created by Christopher Harvey.

Caveats

  1. Upstream does not include a detached license file and license information is hidden in font metadata which points to this web page. You should ask upstream to add a detached txt license file in its archives (that can be included in %doc).
  2. Upstream nicely versions its fonts, but the archive themselves are not versionned. You should ask upstream to version its archives.
  3. Do not forget to add the appropriate fontconfig ruleset to your package.
  4. The GPL requires us to ship the sources of material we package so you should ask the author if he uses some other format when editing before converting to TrueType, and if that is so publish fonts in this format so they can be bundled in the src.rpm.
  5. There are many good fonts on upstream's web page. If you package this one, consider packaging the others too.
