        "19 May 2010 (updated 19 May 2010 at 17:47 UTC)

        Today we're launching the Google Font API. I've been working
        over the past couple of months with highly talented font
        designers to get a great collection of fonts released as open
        source. Almost all the fonts are under the Open Font License,
        and in our discussions I've been sensing a huge amount of
        momentum behind this license.

        Obviously, the main reason we're doing this is to have a
        richer set of fonts for the web. But since the fonts are all
        open source, they can be used for lots of other things. I'm
        confident this collection will shortly show up in Linux
        distribution. We've created a Google Code project to host the
        fonts in the Google Font Directory, many of which contain
        FontForge or FontLab source. I want to run that in open source style,
        and invite people working on packaging fonts for Linux and
        other open source projects to help curate the project."

There have already been various discussions on this but I'm now adding
it to this particular bug.

These libre/open fonts must be packaged separately and not in a huge
lump of different upstreams, usecases and licenses.

No one is likely to use them all at the same time.

This is in line with the general policies of the pkg-fonts team.

Some of these fonts are already packaged by members of the pkg-fonts
team: http://pkg-fonts.alioth.debian.org


This RFP should probably be closed.
