* Package name    : ttf-sil-lateef
  Version         : 1.001
  Upstream Author : Bob Hallissy, Jonathan Kew
* URL             : http://scripts.sil.org/ArabicFonts
* License         : Open Font License 1.1
  Description     : smart Unicode font for Arabic (Sindhi and South
Asian styles)


Description:

Lateef is named after Shah Abdul Lateef Bhitai, the famous Sindhi mystic
and poet. It is intended to be an appropriate style for use in Sindhi
and other languages of the South Asian region.

This font provides a simplified rendering of Arabic script, using basic
connecting glyphs but not including a wide variety of additional
ligatures or contextual alternates (only the required lam-alef
ligatures). This simplified style is often preferred for clarity,
especially in non-Arabic languages, but may be considered unattractive
in more traditional and literate communities.

This release supports virtually all of the Unicode 5.0 Arabic character
repertoire (excluding the Arabic Presentation Forms blocks, which are
not recommended for normal use). Font smarts are implemented using
OpenType and AAT technology.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of ttf-sil-lateef back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting ttf-sil-lateef, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 558002 ITP: ttf-sil-lateef -- smart Unicode font for Arabic
 owner 558002 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <558002@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
