This section is intended to help our internationalization team select the right fonts to install for each locale. It is under the responsibility of the localization team.

Stop (medium size).png
Packaging wishlist
Listing a font there will not cause it to be packaged by itself. You also need to reference it in the font wishlist.


Editing rules:

  1. Please do not edit this section without consulting the localization team. If there is no language team to take care of your fonts yet, it's probably a good idea to create one.
  2. Sort the table by column
  3. Add a line if the font selection changed in a release. If there is no line for a particular release, it's supposed to inherit the values of older releases.

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.
