[opensuse-packaging] Web Font Formats: Where to install?
Hi,

during my font packaging for M17N:fonts, I've come across an
installation issue for Web fonts.

For example, let's consider the St Marie[1] font. It is such a "Web
font"[2] and is published in several Web font formats as SVG[3],
EOT[4], and Woff[5].

The current root directory to search for fonts is /usr/share/fonts.
It contains several subdirectories whereas truetype and Type1 are
certainly the best known/most used. But... there is no directory for
SVG, EOT, and Woff files.

IMHO they should be separated, but no other dir seems to fit. Where do
I install such files?

Thanks!
