   6. For Maintainers
  ====================

  Before packaging a new release based on a new source tarball, you have to
  update the version suffix in the Makefile:

    VER = [VERSION]

  Make sure that the defined version corresponds to the font software metadata
  which you can check with ftinfo/otfinfo or fontforge itself. It is highly 
  recommended that file 'ChangeLog' is updated to reflect changes.

  Create a tarball with the following command:

    $ make dist

  The new versioned tarball will be available in the dist/ folder as
  'liberation-fonts-[NEW_VERSION].tar.gz'.
