(I posted this to -office but I would've CC'd -ports too.)


I think we should have a port the new fonts that the Google
Chrome OS developers have made to replace the so-called
Liberation fonts:


The best place to get them seems to be here

but I couldn't get them with fetch(1) for an unknown reason.

As you may know, Apache OpenOffice won't be carrying anything
GPL'd so the Liberation fonts won't be included, which is not
really a problem as we can use them pre-packaged in FreeBSD,
but while looking for replacements, these seem to be better.

best regards,
