Looks like a nice and refreshing font for on-screen usage. I'm ooking
forward it being in Fedora. One thing I noticed, but which may be
related to how the @font-face is handled by webkitgtk, is that the
subpixel hinting is totally broken for this font (i.e. the font looks
blurry). Could you CC me (same e-mail from which I sent this) in review
request when you have it ready?
