A page of the Fonts Special Interest Group

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.

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: first by script, then locale, etc
  3. Add a line per release if the font selection changed. If several releases shipped with the same settings, just put several entries in the Release column.

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.
