Hello Gheyret,

In order to package the UKIJ fonts, I have to send an "Intent To
package" bug report against the virtual "wnpp" package.

The ITP must contain the proposed name for the package as well as a
description for the package.

According to the pkg-fonts team policy, the name of the package should


(font-<foundry>-fontname: here as there are many fonts, I think we can
say that the collection of fonts is made and distributed by UKIJ,
Uyghur Kompyutér Ilimi Jem'iyiti)

The package description must include a on-line synopsis and a longer

At first glance, I propose something like:

Description: fonts for Uyghur language representation
 This package provides a full set of fonts meant to be use for Uyghur
 These fonts are provided by UKIJ,  UKIJ,
 Uyghur Kompyutér Ilimi Jem'iyiti: .........................

("..................." should be replaced by the English translation
of UKIJ.....which I cant' find on UKIJ website)

Do you think that would be OK?

Also, I need to know the exact license for the fonts. The
http://ukij.org/fonts/ mentions both LGPL3 and OFL. Which one is the
right one?
