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.


The whole fonts package lifecycle, and the role played by packagers in it, are explained in this article.

If you'd like to help beef up Fedora fonts offerings, but do not know where to start, check:


Our general fonts packaging policy is described there. It is completed by the following guidelines:

  • A fonts spec file is often short, which does not imply obvious. To help new fonts packagers or reviewers, we've published an annotated fonts spec template.
  • 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.
