defoma: Debian Font Manager -- automatic font configuration framework

 Defoma, which stands for DEbian FOnt MAnager, provides a framework
 for automatic font configuration. An application whose configuration
 of fonts usually requires manual intervention can automate the
 process through Defoma, by installing a Defoma-configuration
 script. The script gets called whenever a font is installed and
 removed, so that the script may update the application configuration.
 Font packages should register their fonts to Defoma in order to have them
 configured automatically for applications.

defoma-doc: Debian Font Manager documentation

 Defoma, which stands for DEbian FOnt MAnager, provides a framework
 for automatic font configuration.
 This package contains documentation for Defoma in SGML, HTML and TEXT

psfontmgr: PostScript font manager -- part of Defoma, Debian Font Manager

 psfontmgr manages PostScript fonts through the Defoma framework. It
 registers the name of available PostScript fonts to Defoma in
 postscript category, so applications which output a postscript file
 have all the available PostScript fonts in their font-choosing menus.
 It also provides a tool named defoma-psfont-installer, which registers
 PostScript fonts installed in a PostScript printer. This tool benefits
 those who want to print a PostScript file with the printer fonts and
 have the printer fonts appear in a font-choosing menu.
