All this week, we will be testing internationalization (i18n) features in Fedora 32. Those are as follows:

  • FontLangProvidesToLangpacks: — This Change moved Provides: font(:lang=<langcode>) from fonts packages into new langpacks-core-font-<langcode> packages, which define the default Sans font for each language.
  • ProvideOpenTypeBitmapFonts:— This Change provides bitmap fonts with modern font format (OpenType Bitmap Font) to use with gnome-terminal and other applications which uses pango for font rendering.

How to participate

Most of the information is available on the Test Day wiki page. In case of doubts, feel free to send an email to the testing team mailing list.

Though it is a test day, we normally keep it on for the whole week. If you don’t have time tomorrow, feel free to complete it in the coming few days and upload your test results.

Let’s test and make sure this works well for our users!
