-------- Message transféré --------De: Nicolas Spalinger À: OFLBThe note maybe but zipping font files with a detached .TXT file is good practice and should be promoted.Indeed. 100% agreed :-)I'd also highly recommend a file in the release tarball describing the chosen licensing and some kind of readme/changelog. Actually that's why the OFL is promoting the concept of a FONTLOG and provides a template.BTW, here's a proposed VCS branch and tarball template for an open font: http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/pkg-fonts/foo-open-font-sources/?rev=0&sc=0 Your feedback very welcome, Cheers,
Dear Nicolas (and everyone), Thanks for fwd-ing to the Fedora list :-)Let me quickly add that this is not intended to be Debian-specific at all but comes from suggestions and discussions with SIL designers, various people at the last LGM (Libre Graphics Meeting) TLM (TextLayoutMeeting) and UDS (Ubuntu Developer Summit). More like a cross-distro, cross-OS type spec actually.
The purpose is to make life easier for designers/script engineers wanting to use a (D)VCS for collaborative open font design and *also* for packagers who make this work available in the distros :-)
Awaiting your feedback. Cheers, -- Nicolas Spalinger http://scripts.sil.org http://pkg-fonts.alioth.debian.org/ https://launchpad.net/people/fonts
