Without a valid license, it is impossible that Debian can distribute them. (Ok, I only now see that you say that the fonts are GPL. No problem there, then.) > Description : International TrueType Farsi fonts for X > > (Include the long description here.) > Some GPLed TrueType fonts is developed recently. I would like to > package them for Debian. You best read the 'new maintainer's guide' first, <http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/> which talks about how to create packages. More details are available at <http://www.debian.org/devel/> (especially the Debian Policy Manual and the Developer's Reference). I don't know anything about packaging fonts, but I guess you could take one of the existing truetype font packages and use them as a starting point, this is certainly easier than starting from scratch. Once you have a package ready, you best announce it on the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list (add 'RFS' to the subject of your email - a 'Request for Sponsorship') and if somebody wants to look at your package. Work with them to get the package in shape (as a beginner to Debian packages you'll likely have some details to sort out) until your package can be uploaded to Debian (your sponsor will do that for you). greetings -- vbi -- Kräht der Maulwurf auf dem Dach, liegt der Hahn vor Lachen flach.
