Re: URW++ Core Font Set (Level 2) -- fontconfig files in upstream?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


​That's (almost) my preference as well. I proposed the files to upstream without any priority ordering, so every distribution using those files can decide ​by itself, what priority it should have. I guess in most times it will be decided by the font maintainer himself/herself.

So if you do not have any objections, I will ask upstream if they could include those files in their next (URW)++ font release. :)

Best regards,

Well, I personally perfer to let font upstream maintain the config
files for their fonts and leave the priority of fonts to users so they
can adjust their preference without modifying contents in a file.
