Call for feedback along with the above links also in FWN:

Those are my problems with Cantarell:
- "Ș", unicode name: "Latin capital letter S with comma below", code: 
"0218", glyph name: "Scommaaccent";
- "ș", unicode name: "Latin small letter S with comma below", code: 
"0219", glyph name: "scommaaccent";
- "Ț", unicode name: "Latin capital letter T with comma below", code: 
"021A", glyph name: "uni021A";
- "ț", unicode name: "Latin small letter T with comma below", code: 
"021B", glyph name: "uni021B".

The easiest way to cerate those glyphs is to combine S, s, T, t with 
uni0326, "Combining comma bellow", which is also missing from the font.

Confirmed as an Inkcape bug, it works for me in GIMP. However, the 
workaround does not work for me: ctrl+shift+T brings the text dialog 
where i can select medium weight but when pressing the Apply button it 
jump back to bold.

This is next on my agenda.
