[Pkg-fonts-devel] Fwd: [OFL-discuss] OSDL DTL Tech Board: Fonts & Linux (Thu, Aug 31)

It would be good to have Debian font folks in on this. I know this
mail has also been sent to Dejavu list [1] so you may already know
about it. Maybe we can come up with something to do at the 'fonts
workshop' at Extremadura to do with this.

Subject: [OFL-discuss] OSDL DTL Tech Board: Fonts & Linux (Thu, Aug 31)

The OSDL DTL Technical Board is organizing a number of conference calls
on topics that, the tech board believes, are affecting Desktop Linux
adoption. This week's agenda topic is dedicated to Font support on

OSDL DTL organized the second OSDL Desktop Architects Meeting (DAM)
earlier this year and the availability and support of high quality fonts
in emerging markets (e.g. Asia) as well as document fidelity between
different Linux distributions were identified as font-related issues
that could be improved.

We hereby want to invite interested people to this weeks DTL Tech Board
Call to talk about current efforts around fonts, licensing, etc.

Goal for the call is to improve the understanding of font issues as they
exist in current generation Linux Desktop systems, inform people about
current initiatives related to fonts and, if possible, mobilize
individual contributors, OSDL and other corporate resources to help
these efforts along.
