Description Pander 2009-12-28 07:38:04 UTC
TeX Live ships many fonts, but at the moment none of the DejaVu types. In order to get these included, a CTAN package must exist.

Could you please create such a packages offering source, truetype, opentype, etc. for all the DejaVu fonts?

An example can be found here:

If you would be so kind to include updating these CTAN packages for all future DejaVu releases, then all TeX Live users will directly benefit from this.

Because of the automated update procedure in TeX Live, which works via CTAN, all users will be able to use the latest version of the DejaVu fonts. Hopefully, you can also automate the update process from your repository to CTAN.

I hope you welcome this initiative and if you have a CTAN package, it would be my pelasure to request TeX Live to include these.
