1. please rebuild from sfd sources since they're available. Very basic examples

2. please rename the font in the process as upstream does not want us to use

3. you probably want to target the OTF variant

4. please add a fontconfig rule that substitute your new name to old standard
so documents that reference old standards continue to work

5. 69 is probably a bit low as priority, 60 would be fine for a good cyrillic
font as this one is

6. why do you feel you need to change hinting for this font?

7. please register it as a serif font in fontconfig

Anyway Old standard is a very nice font and I hope you'll make a nice package
from it
