metapackage for open font design

Description

This package provides all tools needed to design, adapt, improve and hack on open fonts, including recommendations for the ones needed to do font design in a collaborative manner using VCS (version control systems).

A growing number of high-quality fonts are released under the Open Font License (or similar recognized font-specific licenses) to allow distributing, modifying, improving and branching by others including adding new glyphs and smart behaviours, extending the Unicode coverage, improving hinting and allowing new languages to be supported on the free desktop and, of course, fixing bugs.

The various OFL'ed fonts are listed at http://scripts.sil.org/OFL_fonts and at http://unifont.org/fontguide
