Name        : wqy-unibit-fonts

Version     : 1.1.0
Release     : 4.fc7

Summary     : WenQuanYi Unibit Bitmap Font
Description :
The Wen Quan Yi Unibit is designed as a dual-width (16x16,16x8)
bitmap font to provide the most complete international symbol
coverage, serving as the system-wide fall-back font. This font
has covered over 46000 Unicode code points in BMP.
It is intended to supersede the outdated GNU Unifont.
This font was created by merging the latest update of GNU
Unifont [GPL] (by Roman Czyborra and David Starner et al., the
font was last updated in 2004), WenQuanYi Bitmap Song [GPL]
0.8.1 (by Qianqian Fang and WenQuanYi contributors) and
Fixed-16x8 [public domain] bitmap fonts from X11 core fonts.
The entire CJK Unified Ideographics (U4E00-U9FA5) and CJK Unified
Ideographics Extension A(U3400-U4DB5) blocks were replaced by
high-quality glyphs from China National Standard GB19966-2005
(public domain). Near a thousand of non-CJK characters were improved by
WenQuanYi contributors via their collaborative font editing website at
