Description: standalone version of the AFDKO autohinter
 psautohint is a standalone version of the autohinter from the Adobe Font
 Development Kit for OpenType (AFDKO).

Other Info
--------------
This is a simplified font tool related to AFDKO (ITP bug #762252).

psautohint is required for the Cantarell font 0.100+. Cantarell is the
default font for the GNOME desktop. I am told that other font
developers are using psautohint too.

I am packaging this as part of the Debian Fonts Team.

Packaging is at
https://salsa.debian.org/fonts-team/psautohint

Thanks,
