I'm in the middle of working on a digitisation project of some German texts
and I've noticed that the double hyphen glyph (U+2E17) is not included in
the DejaVu fonts. Would it be possible to include such a glyph?
The double hyphen is similar to an equals sign, basically two hyphens above
each other. In order to distinguish it from an equals sign, it is often
slanted upwards to the right. Wikipedia has a page on it here:
It could probably be added quite quickly for someone familiar with font
tools (unfortunately, I'm not) by copying the equal sign then shearing the
glyph slightly upwards to the right.
