hi all

I am not sure if this is the right place to post an adoption
request, if not, please advise me the appropriate mailing list.

I am an upstream author of a set of popular Chinese fonts.
My team and I spent the past 3.5 years developing high
quality free fonts for CJK users, including the first manually
fine-tuned multi-strike bitmap font with full coverage to GB18030
charset (WenQuanYi Bitmap Song), and the first open-source
Hei Ti (sans-serif) vector font (WenQuanYi Zen Hei).

These fonts are quite popular in the Chinese community,
and widely distributed by Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu etc.
Contributors also packaged these fonts for ArchLinux,
with the hope of benefiting ArchLinux Chinese users.
The links to these packages can be found at


The submitters of the packages recently contacted
me and expressed their desires of pushing these fonts
to "community", as both fonts got reasonable votes
and popularity among the users. However, they have not
yet been able to locate a TU to adopt these packages.

So, we are looking for TU(s) who is able to take
and help maintaining these Chinese font packages.
The package submitters (CCed) and the upstream
are willing to help and clarify things in the process of

Please let us know if you are interested.
thank you for your attention.
