Description Yi Yang 2021-07-24 04:46:10 UTC
Upstream released SIL Gentium 6.000 and 6.001 recently.

The change is huge: in version 5 we only had Regular and Italic versions, but version 6 has also Bold and Bold Italic ones. On the other hand, the "compact" variant of the font, which used to be made available via a USE flag, seems discontinued.

The documentation structure is also vastly changed.

I created a tentative ebuild that reflects the abovementioned changes, which might be used as a reference:

By the way, for non-trivial version bumps, are bump requests (like this) preferred, or pull requests to the main Gentoo tree more welcome?
