I was hit by the same issue too.
Do we want to consider switching to a different font that does?
are more openly-licensed fonts than ever, far more than when we
initially decided to go with MgOpen Modata. I found this font that has a
similar rounded look (it's a wider and more widely-spaced font, but I
think that's okay) and it seems to cover all the basic accents including
acute, grave, umlat, circumflex, etc.:

It's called Quicksand. The author has said he has released it
'license-free' and commercial use is permitted. We would need to get in
touch with him and see if he would be amenable to releasing it under a
recognized open font license before we could include it in Fedora, but
he does seem responsive in the typophile forums .
Yeah, the license certainly must be cleared, maybe he will be interested
to learn about openfontlibrary.org
