Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2010-04-30 20:45:37 UTC
It's not until I go up to size '12' that it really becomes distinguishable.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2010-05-06 08:26:33 UTC
May be better to report upstream?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2010-05-06 16:24:31 UTC
Sure. Where? :)

Don't know a better contact.

(I need to update the droid package to include the new thai variants they've released lately BTW)

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 14:40:25 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.

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 13'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 13 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: 

Comment 7 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2011-06-20 21:54:50 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 8 Richard Shaw 2011-06-20 23:29:34 UTC
Is this still a problem with the current release? I tried all of the droid fonts in OpenOffice and didn't have any issues other than 8pt being very small on my display. I couldn't necessarily tell what they were but I could tell they were different. :)

Comment 9 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2011-06-23 21:08:14 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 15:59:43 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
