Dear potential SIG contributor,

You're receiving this message because you're subscribed to one of the
general relevant Fedora mailing lists, or because our awesome
minion-finding powers have detected your interest in fonts and text
rendering/layouting in Fedora, EPEL or OLPC¹. 

Last month's consultation showed there was enough possible contributors
and needed work to justify creating a Fedora Fonts Special Interest

To get the ball rolling I've started seeding a Fonts SIG space in the
Fedora wiki:

Recently, the Fedora infrastructure team created us a mailing list to
coordinate SIG activities:
In addition to human posts I intend to get it CCed on every font-related
bug in our bugzilla.

That means we have enough infrastructure to open shop, and I hereby
declare the Fonts SIG born.

If you are interested in the Fonts SIG, please:
— read the wiki, and the proposed Fonts SIG charter,
— subscribe to the mailing list,
— let us know there where you want the SIG to evolve
— and what *you* are ready to contribute to make this evolution happen

(in particular only respond to this message on fedora-fonts-list!)

I've created the SIG but we can make it live. It's not a tool to
implement my personal vision². It's not some sort of public to-do list

Stuff will happen because we make it happen. SIG organisation is only
there to help implement our wishes; I've sadly no access to magical
fairies ready to do the work in our stead.

I hope to find many of you on on the Fonts SIG list!


¹ ie you already maintain or co-maintain a fonts-related package in
Fedora (fonts, major text layouting library, font tool…), or made the
mistake to ask about fonts on one of the Fedora lists I read

² Visions are for people standing too long under the sun, and there's
been a distinct lack of it here recently
