My thought is that we're doing just fine on the web site. In fact, we should
probably remove it from the "Contributing" page. Between Newman committing
lostwages patches, me doing news, and a boatload of new stuff flowing to the
Wiki, I think we're ok. Plus, Dimi got suckered^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H promoted
into doing the doc maintenance.
Another idea I had was regarding fonts. What do you guys think of having the
task of creating some TrueType fonts? A lot more projects besides Wine would
benefit and it's something that could be done with no coding skills. (Can
you tell it bugs me every time I download the Core Fonts?) If that was
deemed reasonable, we'd have to figure out what fonts should be tackled
first. Maybe Arial? The to-do list would look like:
1. Figure out if tracing glyphs is legal. If not, find some TTF fonts
someone is willing to relicense.
2. Trace glyphs or relicense fonts.
3. Import new glyphs into fontforge.
It's deceptively simple.
