Let's package fonts. What could go wrong?

Speaker: Yao Wei

Track: Packaging, policy, and Debian infrastructure

Type: Long talk (45 minutes)

Room: Miniauditório

Time: Jul 26 (Fri), 11:00

Duration: 0:50

In this session I would discuss about:

  • Differences between non-free fonts, free (DFSG-free) fonts and fonts that’s allowed to be in main.
  • (Probably wrong) assumption of ttf and otf font formats as “preferable file for making modifications”, and the paradox it causes.
  • Reasons why we want to build fonts from source.
  • The battle of making fonts of source formats buildable.
