installing more fonts by default for better international coverage



Hi,

In the recent online I18n session at FUDConF8 there was some discussion of installation defaults related to international language support, and it was suggested that we should be installing more fonts by default to get better desktop language display coverage out of the box.

So I would like to propose we start installing the following fonts by default on the desktop:

fonts-ISO8859-2, fonts-KOI8-R, fonts-arabic, fonts-chinese, fonts-hebrew, fonts-indic, fonts-japanese, fonts-korean, fonts-sinhala, and xorg-x11-fonts.

I believe the mainstream commercial desktop OS's already do this.

dejavu-fonts and dejavu-fonts-experimental also occur in quite a few language groups, so they might be worth including too?

Any comments or suggestions on this?

Jens
