Description ken moffat 2017-09-25 00:17:46 UTC
This font was perhaps renamed from DejaVu Math at some point, and it is not listed in the wikipedia page of OpenType math fonts. It can be downloaded from http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/tex-gyretexgyredejavu-math-1106-dejavu-math/download/index_html and with fontconfig-2.12.5 it appears to satisfy the coverage for Math (unless I'm misreading the result) :

fc-validate -l und-zmth -v opentype/texgyredejavu-math.otf 
opentype/texgyredejavu-math.otf:0 Satisfy the coverage for und-zmth language

Sorry, I don't get what you meant. are you saying that TeX Gyre DejaVu Math font shouldn't satisfies math coverage because it's not in wikipedia?
Comment 2 ken moffat 2017-09-25 15:29:57 UTC
No, I'm saying I think it CAN be listed in the math fonts of {45,60}-generic.conf, but it is not listed in those.
Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2017-09-26 03:09:40 UTC
Well, first, generally speaking, I don't intend to add all of math fonts there. that is the sort of the fall back for minimal requirements. I'd usually recommend to provide the config in the font upstream as some of config for URW has been moved to upstream these days, because deciding the priority can leave to the users and that can be done without modifying a file.

I'm not sure TeX Gyre DejaVu Math is more famous than those fonts, including the total emoji coverage etc. in that cases I may want to add there though.
