Whiteboard

I saw that this spec has moved into implementation status. Can you embed/incorporate into this project the spec filed as "installing-fonts"? Thanks. -dvarsam 2007-01-18

Yes, if you look at the wiki entry you will find that installing is part of the spec.

Remove fonts in excess of 10MB (/usr/share/fonts/truetype/arphic and /usr/share/fonts/truetype/baekmuk being the biggest) and replace with only the most popular/needed fonts. This will save space on the LiveCD and remove repeated or unused fonts.
