  Description     : smart Graphite font for N'Ko

The Conakry font is a smart font using a Graphite description for the
N'Ko script used by Mande Language communities from West Africa.
The Initiative B at bel from UNESCO supported the preparation of a
proposal to encode N'Ko in Unicode. In 2004, the proposal, presented by
three professors of N'Ko (Baba Mamadi Diané, Mamady Doumbouya, and
Karamo Kaba Jammeh) working with Michael Everson was approved for
balloting by the ISO working group WG2. In 2006 N'Ko was approved for
Unicode 5.0.

The Graphite Description Language (GDL) source is available in the
source package and on the upstream website.
Conakry is a trademark of Evertype.
