Launchpad Entry: https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+spec/open-fonts
The goals are to classify, package, test and integrate the various open fonts into the Ubuntu desktop.
By "open fonts" we mean fonts released under the [http://scripts.sil.org/OFL Open Font License] (or similarly free community-approved licenses) listed on [http://scripts.sil.org/OFL_fonts http://scripts.sil.org/OFL_fonts] which any designer/graphic artist/linguist/whatever can use, study, copy, merge, embed, modify and redistribute/bundle.
It will include surveying the fonts currently shipping, their coverage, the quality of their glyphs, in what languages and locales these glyphs are used, what is the ideal fontconfig configuration, what extra smart features are needed, what dependencies on other writing systems components exist, what relationship with the language packs is best, etc.
The packaging will be done via an Alioth project.
