This patch is required becuase no-hinting renders better fonts for these
languages, the smudging is less, the font is more readable, asthetic sense is
better.
Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2006-07-27 15:31:01 EDT
Mayank, you better ship the config file with the fonts package, not fontconfig.
 I actually appreciate it if you move the current 50-no-hint-fonts.conf out of
the fontconfig package.  That's certainly an improvement.   Check out package
dejavu-lgc-fonts for example to see how you can do that.

Thanks.

Thinking again, and now having bug 200397 too, I think we may as well go on and
commit these to fontconfig and later on clean up the configurations pushing them
into font packages OR upstream.
