Description Jan Sembera 2018-07-11 21:23:51 UTC
In the latest release of terminus-font-4.46, all 8bit encodings stopped being installed by default. This is also mentioned in the release notes:

- The X11 8-bit code pages are not installed by default.

I know I live in the ancient times, but I'd like my iso-8859-2 encoded fonts back. I tried to apply this to the ebuild, and it appears to be working. It looks like pcf-unicode-only should still work and purge everything non-unicode, just like it used to work. Please consider applying this, thanks ;-)
