The Fonts SIG could have been named the Text or Typography SIG. While fonts are a large part of what we do, our actual scope is larger.
The Fonts Special Interest Group is an informal group of Fedora Linux contributors. It is dedicated to improving fonts availability and text rendering/layouting in the distribution and its other Linux derivatives.
Join us and help:
|Activity||OS Developer||Translator||Content Writer||Designer||People Person|
Any font or text-related activity can be tackled, as long as the result is free/libre and compatible with the Fedora objectives.
The current SIG task list is published here.
How to join
The Fonts SIG adheres to the same standards as the rest of the Fedora Project, which means there is some amount of formal process. Don't let this put you off, however. Follow the steps listed on this page, and you'll be fine.

We do not have a dedicated IRC channel right now; the general low-traffic ##fonts channel on irc.freenode.net should be used instead. It is shared by all the FLOSS font groups and is distribution-agnostic.
- 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.
