Hello Keith,

Can you please elaborate what do you mean under "support  for Bitstream Vera 
families of fonts"?
I thought that fonts are supported by FreeType renderer / Xft and there is no 
need for further support in other libs/application.
But if you mean here hard-coding Vera names in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf - than 
can you please exmplain what is needed to add support for my fonts which 
would be released soon?



|  With luck, this should be the last release candidate before 2.2 ships.
