Import spleen bitmap fonts to contrib/
Needs ReviewPublic

Authored by emaste on Jun 15 2019, 1:33 PM.



Spleen is a set of monospaced bitmap fonts in five sizes from 5x8 to 32x64 and is 2-clause BSD licensed.

Prepare to make spleen fonts available for vt(4) in the base system, in particular to support hi-resolution (e.g. 4K) monitors.

This detached license is basically required since bdf files don't have a good way to add it.

well, it could be in the files, but it's unambiguous enough. I assume this is how it is upstream?

This needs to be updated to 1.5.0 which adds Latin Extended-A chars and box drawing characters(!), so dialog(1) looks right now and the window separator is actually drawn in tmux(1).

Spleen 1.6.0 has been released a few days ago --> It would be a nice Christmas gift for 4K monitor users to add this font to the base.
