+libXfont provides the core of the legacy X11 font system, handling the
+index files (fonts.dir, fonts.alias, fonts.scale), the various font file
+formats, and rasterizing them. It is used by the X servers, the
+X Font Server (xfs), and some font utilities (bdftopcf for instance),
+but should not be used by normal X11 clients. X11 clients access fonts
+via either the new API's in libXft, or the legacy API's in libX11.
+Please submit bugs & patches to the Xorg bugzilla:
+All questions regarding this software should be directed at the
+Xorg mailing list:
+The master development code repository can be found at:
