Roadgeek 2005 includes:

  • The 7, FHWA font series (aka Highway Gothic) - used in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Taiwan: B, C, D, E, EM (E modified), EEM (Enhanced E modified), F. EM is E but with looser spacing and thicker strokes to accommodate reflective buttons; because the buttons are no longer widely used EEM undoes the thicker strokes but keeps the looser spacing.
  • Clearview - used in some parts of the United States and Indonesia, designed as a replacement of the FHWA Series typefaces. Available in 13 series: 1B through 6B for negative contrast (dark on light) signs, 1W through 6W and 5WR for positive contrast (light on dark) signs. 5WR is just 5W with tighter spacing.
  • DIN 1451 - German sign typeface. Available in 2 series: Engschrift and Mittelschrift
  • Transport - UK sign typeface. Available in 2 weights: Medium for positive contrast signs and Heavy for negative contrast signs
  • Motorway - UK sign typeface, but only for route numbers on motorway signs. Available in 2 weights: Permanent for positive contrast signs and Temporary for negative contrast signs.
  • Clarendon - used by the US National Park Service ("Old Parks")
  • Rawlinson - a replacement for Clarendon ("New Parks")
  • Arrows, icons, and signbacks

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
