Subject: RFA: defoma -- Debian Font Manager -- automatic font configuration framework
Date: Thu, 10 Jan 2008 08:24:44 +0000
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the defoma package.

I still think defoma fills a need and we should keep it.  It needs a
rewrite into something more resembling maintainable/modern perl, the
gtk1 gui updated/removed and the font hints to be better specified
(look to fontconfig for some ideas here).  I'm happy to be part of
this but I don't have the time to lead such a large project.

The package description is:
 Defoma, which stands for DEbian FOnt MAnager, provides a framework
 for automatic font configuration. An application whose configuration
 of fonts usually requires manual intervention can automate the
 process through Defoma, by installing a Defoma-configuration
 script. The script gets called whenever a font is installed and
 removed, so that the script may update the application configuration.
 .
 Font packages should register their fonts to Defoma in order to have them
 configured automatically for applications.

Subject: Adopting defoma?
Date: Sun, 2 Mar 2008 20:17:11 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi,

while looking over old orphaned packages, I stumbled over perlftlib,
and as the most prominent (only) Reverse-Recommends, defoma.

Angus, the current defoma maintainer, offered it for adoption in
January. It would be nice if the fonts team would adopt it.

I have no idea how well defoma works when perlftlib is removed, so
feedback from someone with more fonts insight would be welcome too.

Thanks,
Christoph

Are you still planning on adopting defoma? I'm strongly considering
NMUing it to resolve #285653, and I'm going to set the maintainer to
packages@qa.debian.org at the same time; if you still plain on
maintaining it, please prepare an upload which fixes these bugs and
coordinate with debian-mentors@lists.debian.org or similar to arrange
a sponsor.
