I cannot see much differences between the different settings for
liberation sans.

No matter which settings are used, it never renders as sharp
as liberation 1.07 with autohint=false and hintstyle=hintfull.

I don’t know why this guy thinks these settings make it sharper.

Certainly the hintslight he suggests doesn’t make it any sharper
than hintfull.

And for Liberation2, the differences between these settings are minor
