Finding agreement and follow-up official statement about future of Wikifont.
It has already been moved to the Design/Archive section based on the outcome of our last UI-Standardization offsite, the message is not sufficient IMHO.
Agreement for resolving this task 2017-01-20:
We've (Foundation UX engineers and designers) identified and agreed, that providing icon fonts is an overhead that we don't want to keep:
- The build step has to be kept updated and working while at the same time
- icon fonts are having severe limitations, therefore we won't provide them as default option and recommend usage of SVGs instead.
@Prtksxna has started an repo with a build step for icon fonts out of the currently in-use OOjs UI icons. This can be used as is or forked. Just as note, he has put this together in his volunteer capacity, so there is no guarantee that he'll maintain this regularly.
A follow-up is on the way, providing icons as SVG source and web-optimized files in T155211
