Wish List

Before submitting a wishlist package, read ForbiddenItems to understand what cannot be included.

Orphaned Packages

Refer to the list or unmaintained and orphaned packages . This would be a good place to bring back into Fedora repositories packages where the original maintainer has moved on.

General Fedora Packages WishList

As a current contributor, if you know of projects that would be appropriate in Fedora package collection but are unable to maintain yourself just drop them with a line here. This list can be used to give other contributors ideas on what to package next. Please be aware however that the number of high quality, well maintained packages that Fedora repository provides scales with the number of active contributors. It is just as important to encourage new contributors as it is to desire new packages. If you are not yet a contributor to the Fedora packaging process, please look over this list and see if there are any projects you would be willing to maintain for the Fedora community.

Fedora acceptability
If you haven't done so yet, please read our legal page and check Category:Rejected and retired fonts before proposing new fonts.

This category lists fonts identified as likely candidates for Fedora integration. To add an entry, just create a new wiki page using the current template. This page explains the easy steps needed to gain wiki editing access.

Additionally, if you need inspiration:

Packagers wanted!
Fonts listed there need the attention of a friendly packager.

To package one of those fonts, change its page as documented in the Packager notes of the template. Then follow the usual Fedora packaging process. You can find font-specific packaging tips on our packaging page.

The whole lifecycle of a font package is described there.

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.
