Hi all,
  The updated package google-croscore-fonts-1.21.0-3.fc17 is now
pushed to stable. I have done some comparison of Liberation vs
Croscore fonts. See
  Currently, I have marked google-croscore-fonts as a optional package
in comps-f18. Considering it has got more orthography support compared
to Liberation font can we install it default? But, I would also say
that we have active development for Liberation font and if a bug comes
for Liberation font we can fix it. I am not sure how a bug can be
fixed for google croscore font. I can't find upstream URL as well as a
way to fix any upcoming bugs and get its fix upstream. We can fix them
in Fedora only.

Any thoughts?
