Open type specification, Adobe font naming guidelines. During Fedora 22 Lohit 
upstream planning to release Lohit Odia and Lohit Telugu with completely 
rewritten open type tables.

Lohit Odia and Telugu fonts are available from 2004. Over the years number of 
redundant and incorrect open type rules got added into this to cope up with 
different layout engine available with Pango, Qt and ICU. We started using 
Harfbuzz-NG unified shaper in Fedora from Fedora 19. Its time to clean-up Odia
