We've recommended Cantarell as the copy font (and Comfortaa for 
headlines) for a while in the brand guidelines [1] but we are likely 
going to change that with the new website / Fedora.next branding stuff.

We're using Open Sans [2] on the new Fedora website - it's definitely 
designed with print legibility in mind so you might like using it 
instead. I think we're probably going to drop Comfortaa for headlines at 
some point so using Open Sans for headlines as well is probably okay.
