The Fedora Fonts Special Interest Group

Os 'Tipos de Letra' SIG poderiam ter sido nomeados de 'Texto' ou 'Tipografia' SIG. Enquanto os tipos de letra são uma grande parte do que fazemos, o nosso âmbito real é maior.

The Fonts Special Interest Group is an informal group of Fedora Linux contributors. It is dedicated to improving fonts availability and text rendering/layouting in the distribution and its other Linux derivatives.

We do not have a dedicated IRC channel right now; the general low-traffic #fonts[?] channel on should be used instead. It is shared by several free/open font groups and is distribution-agnostic.

There is now a new globalization #fedora-g11n[?] channel on that also can be used for any fonts issues.

Nicolas Spalinger of SIL, Debian and Ubuntu fonts fame has set up planet open fonts Feed-icon-14x14.png, with a VCS satellite Feed-icon-14x14.png, to help people in the free/libre-open fonts community exchange information.
