Package: wnpp
Version N/A; reported 2017-07-17
Severity: wishlist

I had the wrong package in the previous bug. Sorry about that.


My team at SIL-NRSI has released a font not in Debian, Awami Nastaliq,
that I would like to package for Debian.

Package name    : fonts-sil-awami-nastaliq
Version         : 1.000
Upstream Author : SIL NRSI <fonts@sil.org>
URL             : http://software.sil.org/awami
License         : OFL-1.1
Section         : fonts
Description	: Smart Unicode font for the Nastaliq script

Awami Nastaliq is a Nastaliq-style Arabic script font supporting a wide variety 
of languages of Southwest Asia, including but not limited to Urdu. This font 
is aimed at minority language support. This makes it unique among Nastaliq fonts.

Awami means "of the people", "of the common population" or "public". 

The Awami Nastaliq font does not provide complete coverage of all the characters 
defined in Unicode for Arabic script. Because the font style is specifically 
intended for languages using the Nastaliq style of southwest Asia, the character 
set for this font is aimed at those languages.

This font makes use of state-of-the-art font technologies to support complex 
typographic issues. Font smarts have been implemented using  Graphite only. We have 
no current plans to support OpenType.

One font from this typeface family is included in this release:
     * Awami Nastaliq Regular

It builds those binary packages:

fonts-sil-awami-nastaliq - Nastaliq-style Arabic script font

To access further information about this font, please visit the
following URL:


Can a repo for the GBP packaging be created at
https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-fonts/ ?

Daniel Glassey can sponsor this package, or Fabian Greffrath might, as
he sponsored the last font I packaged, fonts-sil-annapurna.
