[Pkg-fonts-devel] RFP: Free Educative Handwritung Fonts

Dear Debian Font Task Force,

I'd like to draw your attention to 
and hope that you can, please, give some assistance in 
getting further free fonts into Debian [Edu] that are valuable for educative 
usage (schools using Skolelinux e.g.).

There are many comments on this RFP bug, and probably I should file a similar 
report to bugs.debian.org. For now (being short of time), I leave it with a 
short summary here:

Debian using schools need educative fonts. I'm in contact with a free font 
designer who commited a lot of work to a free version of different 
handwriting/script fonts - including German "Vereinfachte Ausgangsschrift" 
which is used in most primary schools here. Those fonts are under free 
license, and to be released soon; for Debian Edu/Skolelinux, having these 
fonts in Debian, is a preposition for deploying these fonts with the upcoming, 
edge based version of Skolelinux.

Thank you for any assitance, 
Ralf, teaching FOSS activist

P.S.: Of course, we could provide Fontforge's source format - I might even 
have an SVN account on Alioth - but it would take some time until I'd achieve 
commitments there. 

P.S.: Also check for http://wiki.skolelinux.de/FreieSchriftarten
