Package: qa.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: qa.debian.org at packages.debian.org

Please add a "fonts" link to the links section of the PTS. The YAML
based mapping of binary package names to font review pages is here:


It is updated with an @weekly cron job on alioth, which uses UTC. It is
only updated weekly since it takes a while to run and because it relies
on the Contents files, which IIRC are only updated weekly.

The font review pages currently contain font meta-data (including
embedded copyright & license info), fontconfig information, Unicode
coverage and fontlint output (which checks fonts for problems).

The Debian Fonts Task Force intends to improve these review pages over
time, adding new meta-data, QA checks and to improve the image previews.

Eventually we aim to add lines to the PTS TODO section for buggy fonts.
We'll submit another bug report when the preparation for that is done.
