Thank you for the updated .orth file. before merging I need to ask
you. with the current zh_hk.orth, I can see WenquanYi Zen Hei families
and AR PL UMing covers zh-hk language coverage in fontconfig. but with
yours, those fonts doesn't anymore. is it expected behavior? and which
fonts is supposed to support zh-hk then?
