F8-devel, as it stands now, contains

2.20 was cleaned up, so lgc would be even smaller. Is this a historically high
dejavu and dejavu-lgc have historically been two different packages built two
different ways and maintained by two different persons. So they've not always
been in sync.
Since both are used as default fonts by a lot of people we've avoided pushing
updates after the last test releases, as people complain in a big way if their
default font was broken. dejavu and dejavu-lgc entered F8T3 with different
levels and therefore will hit F8 with different levels (also most of the fixes
in 2.20 where out of the lgc range)
For F9 dejavu and dejavu-lgc will be built from the same source package so
they'll always be in sync in the future
(http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=22419) I'm not sure if we
want to take the risk of offering 2.21 as a F8 update when it's released.
Fair enough... closing...
