[Pkg-fonts-devel] "texlive-fonts-x11" (was: Please separate the .pfb files of Type1 fonts and make them available to X11)

Hi all,

this is the bug that requests that a tetex-extra-type1 for use in X11
should be generated from the tetex-extra package; Hilmar has already
done most of the work needed.

However, it won't happen with teTeX which is dead upstream and will be
dropped for lenny.  The question is whether such a split makes sense in
TeXLive, its successor.  

Remember that a TTF version of Computer Modern is already available, and
that Latin Modern is already integrated with X11.  So the only fonts
that we could add are the more exotic ones, as long as they are
available in Type1 format.  To get an estimate of the fonts in question,
I used the following command

dlocate -L texlive-fonts-extra | grep type1 | sed -e 's@/usr/share/texmf-texlive/fonts/type1/\(.*\)/.*@\1@'| sort -u

which yields

in directory public: 

allrunes antt archaic arev augie aurical belleek bera brushscr cm-lgc
dictsym doublestroke esvect fourier gothic hfbright iwona kurier
ocherokee oinuit phaistos tapir trajan

in directory urw: 
antiqua grotesq

What do you think?
