Aboriginal Sans North American Native font
Aboriginal Sans was created by Christopher Harvey to be a partner to the Aboriginal Serif font. This is a very large font containing all of the letters necessary to type in any North American Native language.
The characters in Aboriginal Sans are of original design, and have been made to be crisp and clean in appearance, both on the printed page as well as the screen. Especially innovative is the design of the Cherokee Syllabics, which are rarely seen in a Sans-serif format. This font has regular, italic, bold, and bold-italic varieties.

- 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).
- Upstream nicely versions its fonts, but the archive themselves are not versionned. You should ask upstream to version its archives.
- Do not forget to add the appropriate fontconfig ruleset to your package.
- 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.
- There are many good fonts on upstream's web page. If you package this one, consider packaging the others too.
