Awesome, thanks!

I did check Veeki's commits I couldn't find a lot.
I guess it would be better if I rollback to his commits and try to implement.
I compiled freetype on my device and I'm still getting used to the codebase.
once I'm a little confident I'll ask you about more stuff maybe.

are there any special requirements before submitting the proposal?

Thank you
