Addition of OpenSymbol2

Desktop / LibreOffice - dante [gmail.com] - 24 July 2021 13:21 UTC

Remaining lines have been uploaded via amend. The other day was discussed in the IRC chat if OpenSymbol was actually removable. The actual problem with open symbol is that there are too many characters missing characters and it supposes a ballast for starmath. This responds to: Bug tdf#134214 Some of the problems caused by this are WON'T FIX: mathhbb, fractur, setp tdf#49990 and much more. However replacing the font was actually impossible. If changed the layouts old documents may break. For that reason the new font had to support what already was implemented in a way it won't change the layout: the old symbols had to be conservated. Result: we are creating a new font, containing opensymbol just for personal use of starmath module. For now the changes with opensymbol are:
- Reencoded as ISO 10466-1 ( unicode32 full ) with fontforge.
- Added quadruple integral with fontforge.
- Do not use it outside starmath. Changes will be made in private chars area. IT MAY BREAK. In order to complete it, characters from anothers fonts will be added. For now the best option is libertinus math. This font final name might end beeing something like LO Libertinus math. I have already contacted the maintainer in order to get permission and waiting for answer. In case of no will look for other fonts. The other option would be to make opensymbol2 a subproduct of libertinus because:
