Oski West Algonquian and Inuktitut font
OskiWest 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. The primary difference between the OskiEast and OskiWest fonts is that the “h” final is sized differently to be consistent with the size of the other finals.
This family contains specially made Italic, Bold, and Bold-Italic fonts, giving a much more attractive document than when a word-processor attempts to italicize a regular font.
They were created by Christopher Harvey.

- 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.
