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.
