A page on Fedora Fonts

Fonts packaging has its particularities; this page is intended as a one-way stop for the new fonts packager or reviewer.

Finding material to work on

If you'd like to help beef up Fedora fonts offerings, but do not know where to start, check our localization fonts requirements, the list of fonts waiting for a packager, and the list of font packages waiting for a reviewer.


Our general font packaging policy is described there.

Plumbing tips

Spec template

Fonts packaging is often viewed as "easy". A fonts spec file is certainly never very long. However, given the same questions get asked over and over again on Fedora lists, it seems this is not the case. To help new fonts packagers or reviewers, we've published an annotated fonts spec template.

Fontconfig rules

Fontconfig is awesome, but can not always make all the right choices by itself. Visit our fontconfig page and learn how to give it some hints.

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.
