Subject: Re: [VOTE] Merge Temp_FontMerging to trunk
I tested the code with some examples from a weekly newsletter that I receive
-- this is a good example because the newsletter is always created using the
same template and the same set of fonts (with a few exceptions).
The code worked mostly well but the output was not perfect with some of the
fonts, where some glyphs were missing of misplaced (causing overlap). So
there is still work to be done. Nevertheless, and since the feature is
disabled by default, I think there is value in merging this to trunk because
it does work in many situations. Besides I don't know if the problem is due
to this patch or to PDFBox. Hence +1.
Note: I will send the examples directly to Simon.

It is using pdfbox 2.0 snapshot which requires Java 6 or later so you vote
needs to agree to end support for Java 5 on trunk.
It is supporting fonts of type CFF, Truetype, CID and Type1.
The vote will last 5 working days, ending next Friday.
Here is my vote: +1
