Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : golang-github-goki-freetype
  Version         : 0.0~git20181231.fa8a33a-1
  Upstream Author : GoKi
* URL             : https://github.com/goki/freetype
* License         : GPL-2.0+
  Programming Lang: Go
  Description     : Freetype font rasterizer in the Go programming language.

 It is an incomplete port:
   * It only supports TrueType fonts, and not Type 1 fonts nor bitmap fonts.
   * It only supports the Unicode encoding.
 .
 There are also some implementation differences:
   * It uses a 26.6 fixed point co-ordinate system everywhere internally,
     as opposed to the original Freetype's mix of 26.6 (or 10.6 for 16-bit
     systems) in some places, and 24.8 in the "smooth" rasterizer.
 .
 Freetype-Go is derived from Freetype, which is written in C.

This package is a dependency of another package "golang-fyne-fyne" (#925466)
