Please package fontconfig orth files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:19 EST
The DejaVu build process requires access to fontconfig orth files to compute
language coverage of the built font
Please package these files, either in the fontconfig -devel package or a
(or fontconfig-lang if you prefer)
Agreed that would be useful. Pango uses them to build some tables too. I'm ok
with just putting them in -devel. We don't need more packages...
Going to package, and requested API for them, so in the future we can drop orth
Now I wonder if we should just wait for that API instead of packaging orth files
and then removing them at some point, possibly making people scream.
Anyway, Nicolas, please attach your patch here.
Ok, patched fontconfig to add FcGetLangs() and FcCharSetForLang(). No need to
parse orth files anymore. Ported pango to use it:
Hopefully will make it into fontconfig-2.5.

Quick & dirty packaging patch
Proposed patch. didn't have the time to split it
The pango fix while nice is not helping my use case at all :(
