Expansion: Ubuntu Font should support pIqaD (Klingon)
|||Ubuntu Font Family||
Binary package hint: ttf-ubuntu-
While we don't have a huge Klingon community in Ubuntu (at least not according to the Klingon Translations Team), it would still be nice to at least be able to display the Wikipedia Klingon Language page properly without having the subtitle display as blocks. Also, it would be a nice exercise for the font designers and having at least some support for an obscure constructed language does allow some bragging rights.
Having just a few glyphs initially would maybe inspire some Klingon speakers to get involved and develop some more glyphs.
Also, when the Khitomer Accords will be signed in 2267 and the Klingons join the Federation, it will be nice to introduce them to Ubuntu and show them that their language is already fully supported, and may strengthen early relations. Some might note that this is against the Temporal Prime Directive, but technically that only takes effect in the 24th century.
