Foreword
  • Frames that use this style are redaction tips. Please remove them from your page once they are no longer necessary. Do the same for the lorem ipsum bits.
  • Remember the more complete and accurate the information you add is, the more likely a font is to be packaged and widely used.
  • Do not forget to update the page categorization once the font status changes.

Description

LeedsUni is intended to blend with Times, but has been designed from scratch by Alec McAllister of the University of Leeds. Note, for instance, that the serifs are square in LeedsUni, but rounded in Times.

It includes all characters in the MUFI (Medieval Unicode Font Initiative) recommendation v. 2.0.

Packager
  • License ③ should correspond to an entry on our legal page. If that's not the case please follow the procedure documented on that page to check the license acceptability.
  • Once a package has entered the review stage, add a Review reference ④ such as 181994. You can reference this wiki page in your review request as additional information. Please do not forget to CC fedora-fonts-bugs-list@redhat.com on your bugzilla ticket.
  • Once a package has been approved, add the corresponding:


Style Faces Scripts
Sans Serif Other R B I BI Other Latin Greek Cyrillic Other
Variable Monospace Variable Monospace
MUFI v2

Caveats

  1. Nicely versioned font
  2. The author's page lacks any clear licensing information (apart from "freeware"). Please contact the author politely and convince him to add one of our approved licenses (ideally OFL or GPLv3 + font exception) as detached text file inside his font zip release. If he does not want to do so right now, a mail stating he accepts Fedora redistributes the font under one of those licenses is OK.

Take care of those items and remove them from the page once they've been dealt with.
