We also package some tools designed to deal and build fonts (such as fontforge - and the rest of the open-font-design-toolkit)
we review existing fonts in the archive for redundancy, description accuracy, licensing compliance, etc.
We're in touch with the type design community to encourage them to use FLOSS licenses for their creation.
We test and tweak the interaction of fonts with other parts of the OS especially in the area of i18n (Unicode coverage, style coherence per language, smart features, etc)
The team is open to everyone who would like to help.
Package new fonts
Write more team documentation
Talks with font package maintainers and have them include their packaging work under the team's umbrella
