Re: UTF-8 in jessie

Quoting Charles Plessy (plessy@debian.org):

Such as tasksel and its language tasks? :-)

In short, we already have that. However, we need people to maintain
that, namely to decide what fonts should be installed when a given
language is chosen at install time.

This is usually asked to contributing new translators of D-I and,
therefore, most languages that are not Latin-<something> based will
trigger the installation of a font package that is suitable for them.

I also try to move the maintenance of such font packages under the
(large) umbrella of the pkg-fonts maintenance team, as the maintenance
of font packages is usually very loose.
