As Wine co-maintainer I would like to open a discussion on the fonts that Wine
includes. For those that do not know Wine is a set of libraries that allows
Windows executables to run under a Linux environment.
Wine includes several fonts in order to provide support that Windows programs
expect to exist. Packages include:
These packages (exception of wine-tahoma-fonts) install fonts to
/usr/share/fonts and affect rendering in applications that call upon these
fonts. Users have complained of rendering using these fonts. I do not
experience poor rendering with these fonts so it is hard for me to sympathize,
but I hate having open bugs that go unanswered.
Can the Fedora Font SIG provide guidance? Should Wine be installing to
