Sorry to pick old emails, I have a devel@ backlog currently.

Just a plea to please be very conservative introducing new packages (and
hence extra size) to the default set, as both the DVD and desktop live
images are currently (Alpha, and Beta TC1) oversize and need trimming. I
think we should aim to have sufficient font coverage for all practical
out-of-the-box Fedora usage, but try and do so as efficiently as
possible, at least as long as we're sticking to current image size
targets. Thanks!

Yes, do agree with.

      <packagereq type="default">google-noto-sans-lisu-fonts</packagereq>   -> 12K
      <packagereq type="default">google-noto-sans-mandaic-fonts</packagereq>   ->   20K
      <packagereq type="default">google-noto-sans-meeteimayek-fonts</packagereq>  ->  20K
      <packagereq type="default">google-noto-sans-tagalog-fonts</packagereq>   ->   16K
      <packagereq type="default">google-noto-sans-tai-tham-fonts</packagereq>  ->   36K 
      <packagereq type="default">google-noto-sans-tai-viet-fonts</packagereq>    ->   20K

Above are the packages added to default install list of Fedora from google-noto-fonts, i believe these are important and we don't have substitute for them in existing default fonts list packages.
