./fonts/go-ttf, Family of high-quality WGL4 TrueType fonts created for the Go project

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.008, Package name: go-ttf-2.008, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

A family of high-quality WGL4 TrueType fonts, created by the Bigelow
& Holmes type foundry specifically for the Go project.

The font family, called Go (naturally), includes proportional- and
fixed-width faces in normal, bold, and italic renderings. The fonts
have been tested for technical uses, particularly programming. Go
source code looks particularly good when displayed in Go fonts, as
its name implies, with things like punctuation characters easily
distinguishable and operators lined up and placed consistently.
