README for the mfnfss' bundle (December 2017)

This "bun­dle" con­sists of a few old pack­ages writ­ten to sup­port some meta­font based fonts within NFSS. In the early days of it was part of the re­quired setup for .


The files in this bun­dle are no longer main­tainted by the Team! So I (Frank) have picked them up to give the sources a new home, but I do not ex­pect to do much main­te­nance on them (if any).

If you ac­tu­ally want to use the Pan­dora fonts, you have to in­vest a a bit of work as the fonts them­selves aren't dis­tributed these days by most dis­tri­bu­tions be­cause of li­cense is­sues (they aren't al­lowed for com­mer­cial use so aren't "free" by some stan­dard (they are on CTAN though, so it is pos­si­ble to in­stall them). Please do not ask me how to do that with your in­stal­la­tion!

For the old Ger­man fonts from Yan­nis the sit­u­a­tion is some­what bet­ter: so the oldgerm pack­age should work out of the box with most or all dis­tri­bu­tions.

The file manifest.txt con­tains a list of the main files in the dis­tri­bu­tion to­gether with a short sum­mary of each file.

The files are li­censed un­der LPPL.
