> OFS (Olsak's Font System) is plainTeX and LaTeX macro for managing large font collections. It is used by Czech/Slovak users many years. 
> Main features:
> * Long names of fonts to metric file name mapping. User
>   can specify only exact long names in your document.
> * Support for many font encodings.
> * Printing of catalogues of fonts, test samples of 
>   font families.

>   (may be better than NFSS).
> * Support for math fonts including TX fonts.

Thank you very much for the upload.  I installed the package in

The package has an individually worded license which I'd like to sort under
the license type 'other'.  I believe it to be free enough to have it put
in the 'official' CTAN tree instead of the 'CTAN:/nonfree' directory tree.
