My name is Somvannda, I am from Cambodia, and I am a new Fedora Ambassador
Well, I noticed that the official Khmer font come within the Fedora was not
a good one, since it does not give an easy-to-read for user and the font
size is also big. I would like to make a request to change the official
font from Khmer OS to Hanuman in the next release. You can find the font
here https://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Hanuman. You can also see the
statistic that lots of Khmer people are like using this font right now.
Please let me know if you have any question!

Liberation is very special fonts in opensource world. It has served
open source communities for more that 7 years. It has got an excellent user

Liberation 2 is actively used with Libreoffice for last 2+ years, since it
has got a better character coverage.
Recently i had conversation with Wikimedia developer Ryan Kaldari
where he mentioned "We evaluated numerous fonts and Liberation Sans had the
highest overall score of all the FOSS sans-serif fonts we evaluated."
There was an issues  with positioning of accent marks which we have
fixed. After it i believe Wikipedia is also now using Liberation fonts from
For better collaboration for upcoming development of liberation 2, we
have now made it available on github.  Existing fedorahosted git will be
still there but i will mostly use it only for liberation 1.07 and
liberation 2.0 development will happen on github and i will just sync
fedorahosted git with github periodically.
While packaging SimpleCV (#1070946), we found some included fonts that
are not yet available in Fedora. I am now on the process of packaging
them. I am currently focussing on Astloch font. Here is the fontconfig
file I created for review. I am not sure about the prefix. I guess that
61 is OK.

I also guess that I must create a wiki page about the font but I haven't
found any particular instructions in the wiki. Maybe a copy/paste +
adaptation of an existing page is OK?
