Thanks for the quick response, all those links do answer quite a few
questions, but I have one more: What should I do with fonts on the
wishlist that I am working on, or planning on working on? Do I just edit
the wiki and remove them from the wishlist, move them to a different
page, or what? Basically, what I want to know is, how do I let people
know "Hey I'm working on this font!" So that someone else doesn't
duplicate my work.
