  Description     : extended Unicode smart font family for
Latin/Greek/Cyrillic


Description:

Gentium ("belonging to the nations" in Latin) is a Unicode typeface
family designed to enable the many diverse ethnic groups around the
world who use the Latin script to produce readable, high-quality
publications. The design is intended to be highly readable, reasonably
compact, and visually attractive. Gentium has won a "Certificate of
Excellence in Typeface Design" in two major international typeface
design competitions: bukva:raz! (2001) and TDC2003 (2003).

Gentium Plus is based on the original Gentium design. However, it now
has the full OpenType and Graphite support that Doulos SIL and Charis
SIL contain — including full IPA support!

The goal for this product is to provide a single Unicode-based font
family that contains a comprehensive inventory of glyphs needed for
almost any Roman- or Cyrillic-based writing system, whether used for
phonetic or orthographic needs, and provide a matching Greek face. In
addition, there is provision for other characters and symbols useful to
linguists. This font makes use of state-of-the-art font technologies to
support complex typographic issues, such as the need to position
arbitrary combinations of base glyphs and diacritics optimally.

Work is ongoing to provide bold and bold-italic weights, as well as a
complete book-weight family.

The extended font sources are available in the source package and on the
project website. Webfont versions and examples are also available.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of fonts-sil-gentium-plus 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 fonts-sil-gentium-plus, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 602905 ITP: fonts-sil-gentium-plus -- extended Unicode smart
 owner 602905 !
 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 <602905@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Sorry for the unexpected delays, the package is ready.

I will soon upload it to mentors.d.n and get DDs in the pkg-fonts team
to sponsor it for me.
