I am the author of the apt backend of PackageKit, a distribution neutral
package management interface. It enables applications to install
required components in a common way. Recently support for font
installation was added.
If a pango based application wants to render a not available font the
user will have the opportunity to search and install the corresponding
What I need is a way to associate fonts and packages. I have seen that
you maintain a list of packages with fonts in Debian . Is this data
available in a more machine friendlier form? Do you keep this
information in a subversion repository?
I could think of shipping the data in the packagekit package or
accessing the Internet to get the information.
