Adding Language Support:

Let's say we want to add support for a new language (with locale ab_CD) in Fedora. The following documents the steps and requirements needed for adding language support in Fedora from i18n point of view:

  • the locale ab_CD should be defined in glibc
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.
  • Rendering Engine support for Unicode code-points of ab_CD (pango, qt)
  • an Input Method Engine or keyboard map (eg m17n-db) that allows keyboard input of the language
  • a language support group should be added to comps for the language
  • the language should be included in the GDM language list (actually this should now be automatic for recent gdm?)
  • the language should be added to system-config-language
