Personally, the lower-case "a" in that font gives me a headache. I think
it's not "modern" enough looking for Fedora. I just tried to envision how
"fedora" would look and I like the existing font much better. But that's
just personal preference. While we do have Umlaute in German, I never use
them when doing English work so I've never even thought about the issue. But
then I don't have a problem with my name obviously... :/

Would we have to change the infinity wordmark as well? Would that work with
this font?

Just my five Euro cents,
