Luya's blog post tonight  reminded me of an ongoing issue we have -
our secondary font, MgOpen Modata, doesn't have basic accent marks (I
can't even write my own name in it.)
Do we want to consider switching to a different font that does? There
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 .
What do you think?
