[openlp-dev] Themes

As part of my pathlib refactors I've been considering how to make things
like themes and services more portable. Part of the solution I've been
working on is to make any paths relative where it makes sense. (I.e. inside
of a theme file)

Because of this I've been thinking of enhancing the way we package themes.
One of the issues I've come across is that we do not package fonts with
themes. Maybe it's a bit premature (I haven't finished my pathlib refactors
ATM) but I've been thinking about implementing this. Although,  as it's
pointed out on Wikipedia embedding fonts is a bit controversial (

This got me thinking about Google web fonts (https://fonts.google.com/)
their about page states that all the fonts are free and open source. Of the
ones I looked at all seem to be licenced with the Open Font licence (

How would you guys feel about including these fonts with OpenLP? Maybe
packaging them as a separate download (so as not to bloat OpenLP)? Any
other thoughts?

God Bless,
