Pango is a library for laying out and rendering text, with an emphasis on
internationalization. Pango can be used anywhere that text layout is needed,
but using Pango in conjunction with L<Cairo> and/or L<Gtk2> provides a complete
solution with high quality text handling and graphics rendering.

Please do not contact any of the maintainers directly unless they ask you to.
The first point of contact for questions/problems/issues should always be the
mailing list.


For help with problems, please contact the mailing list (above).  If you
already know you have a bug, please file it with one of the bug trackers
below.  With any problems and/or bug reports, it's always helpful for the
developers to have the following information:

- A small script that demonstrates the problem; this is not required, however,
  it will get your issue looked at much faster than a description of the
  problem alone.
- Version of Perl (perl -v)
- Versions of Gtk2-Perl modules (Glib/Gtk2/Pango/Cairo)
- Optional, but nice to have: versions of GTK+ libraries on your system
  (libglib, libgtk+, libpango, libcairo, etc.)

There are multiple project bug trackers, please choose the one you are most
comfortable with using and/or already have an account for.

Request Tracker:
- submitting bugs via the Web (requires a PAUSE account/Bitcard):
- submitting bugs via e-mail (open to anyone with e-mail):
  bug-Pango [at]

Gnome's bugtracker:
- report bugs to the 'gnome-perl' product (requires login)


You can send us patches by...
- E-mailing it to the mailing list (above); please use a pastebin service of
  some kind for longer patchfiles (over say 20k in size).
- Those with Git ID's can push trivial patches to git directly; if
  you're not sure what a trivial patch is, please ask first on the mailing
  list prior to pushing your commit.


Assuming you already have the 'git' command installed on your system, you can
use the 'git://' protocol:

 git clone git://

Or, read-only access via HTTP:

 git clone

To update an existing clone of the source:

 git pull

Most Linux distros package the 'git' command in a package called either 'git'
or 'git-core'.
