cent sign incorrect
cent sign shoud be a coressed capital "C".
Checked. They are all aesthetic preference from the original author. Hence, they should not be bug.
I tried to work on your demand, could you kindly have a look sample:
Let me know if you are happy with that. So I could proceed changes on all included fonts.
Built to rawhide:

I check with the fonts from https://fedorahosted.org/releases/l/i/liberation-fonts/liberation-fonts-1.04.93.devel.zip, all fixed. Thanks.
Here I put the reason to report the bug：
1) to follow the unicode reference:
2) cent sign marked as acrossed C is more clear and easy to designate in small size.
Liberation fonts will be the first choice for LGC. Thank you !

Display of cent sign in Sans and Mono with bytecode hinting
Hinting for ¢ is completely broken-- particularly in Mono.
The hinting has not been adjusted for the new design of the ¢ sign - see attachment 328522 [details] which I just posted.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I don't have knowledge of hinting at the moment.
So better to revert?
It appears it's already been reverted in the latest releases on FedoraHosted, which have been re-generated from the Ascender-provided 1.02 release.
But yes, I agree, keep the original Ascender glyph unless you're willing to re-hint the cent sign for the benefit of Freetype builds that use bytecode hinting.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Done - http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=171510
Auto instruction by FontForge will be done after any changes on a given glyph. Hinting instructions came from the first version will be defined as legacy which is alright to be obsoleted if needed.
