Auto-generation of "use xxx font" config via a script?
Many parts of the config are trivial and can be generated using a shell script with (well) hard-coded templates.
The script should be able to generate these parts:
- aliasing from one font to another
- Generic family bidirectional alias generation (like 30-metric-aliases.conf)
- Optionally, hardcode a list of what 30-metric-aliases.conf knows. That's the most comprehensive list for Latin fonts I have seen.
- preferring one font for a given family
- No, there is nothing new compared to the examples on the Font configuration page which actually explain what they are doing. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 12:34, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
I don't think Infinality-like font substitution belongs in Font_configuration/Examples, it's not really examples. I do think links to the bundle's repo sub dirs (for it's font
.conf) are in order but I digress. I'm not sure the provided
30-infinality-aliases.conf is really needed or even desirable as previously mentioned. Users only need to add liberation sans (or similar) in 60-latin.conf to not have the painfully wide dejavu (preferred by default for whatever reason). ― Ubone (talk) 15:20, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
Patched packages - section for removal
is there any reason to keep Font_configuration/Examples#Patched_packages since freetype 2.7 for ubuntu only? it's debian unstable (and outdated)  and i don't see patches  providing anything doesn't ― Ubone (talk) 10:12, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
