Gnome font can at last (theoretically) extract TrueType name strings in portable way. Now I have to start extending it both directions - glyph/outline and family/group handling.

Unfortunately most fonts do not specify anything other than en_US (en) names. Hopefully we can get over it, defining fake gettext strings with most popular font attributes and letting translators to do usual po files. Hooking these to library should be minor effort.

Working @home is exactly as I imagined it to be. Partially fun - at last I can do full day things I like and get paid for it. Partially pain - refrigerator is too close, there is nice summer day outside and children keep asking me all day, when they can at last play computer games.
