           Summary: Please merge thai from thaifonts-arundina
           Product: DejaVu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: General
        AssignedTo: dejavu-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: nicolas.mailhot at laposte.net

Arundina fonts were created under SIPA's initiation, aiming at Bitstream
Vera/Dejavu compatibility. They were then further modified by TLWG for certain

    * Latin glyph size compatiblity. That is, Latin glyphs should have equal
size with those from Western fonts at the same point size, so that it would not
require users to scale fonts when using them together in the same documents.
    * OpenType conformance. Similar to the ThaiFonts-Scalable project we have
done, we attempt to fullfill OpenType requirements for Thai fonts, according to
our drafted spec. However, as many applications, including MacOS before Leopard
and Adobe before CS3, do not support the Thai-specific features well, the
'liga' GSUB hack developed by the original author is still retained for the
time being.

We use FontForge as development tool. You need it to generate fonts from the
downloaded source.
