Re: Adding Georgian Support in Fedora/Anaconda

Oh, god... finally i've got answers on all questions!
Thank you very very much!!!

All provided packages are COMPLETELY created by our member.
Also i'll try to include GPL fonts provided by other persons.
I can create noarch rpms if needed - no problem, i have created
fedora-based distro from scratch for georgian schools for ministry of
education, hard work you know...
Finally we have keymaps and that's it!

It's just packaged -- per the README in the kbd package:
  The home site of this package is
  Report problems with this package to Andries Brouwer <aeb cwi nl>.

You could file a bug for the Fedora version of kbd to include something,
but it's much better to also get it included upstream at the same time.

It's important to first ensure that they're not derived from any
non-free fonts.  Once that's done, set up a location where they can be
downloaded and you can start the process to add a new package (see
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Contributors).  Alternately, you
can work with a project such as dejavu to add coverage for your locale
to their existing font.

Once there is font support in the distribution and translation of
anaconda is at around 90%, file a bug report asking for the language to
be added to lang-table.  Provide the locale name, console font, console
keymap, timezone and any graphical fonts needed to support the locale.

It's from upstream X if it's the font I think you're talking about.
