Foreword
This article was originally posted on various Fedora lists.


After 10 days of work and about 850 changes the Fonts SIG wiki is operational again. (I don't know mediawiki, so I won't claim to have been efficient). The clean-up was accompanied by restructuring to take into account differing moin/mediawiki capabilities and the fact some pages had become huge and monstrous over time.

The SIG home page has been moved there.

The old SIG pipeline and wishlist pages have been split in per-font articles to be more manageable:

The new SIG workflow is to create a new page per font and change the page category as the font progresses in the packaging process. A documented font page template is provided to ease this workflow.

If you're the maintainer of a font package, or if you've added a font to the wishlist, please check the corresponding font page exists and is as complete as possible.

I've nuked the old SIG member list. It was incomplete and not up to date. If you wish to register your interest in the SIG please just add the Category:Fonts_SIG_members category to your homepage to get listed there.

Using categories means we get nice dynamic self-maintaining indexes all over the place.

I hope the end result is clear and pleasant and will motivate more people to work on the big font wishlist. Remember.
