Please be patient because this is the first time I am working with fontconfig.
So my questions my seem noobish.

Thank you for your explaination.
That change costed me some hours for fixing cairo code.
Due to the change of fc-match, some cairo APIs also had ( forced ) to
adapt with the changes.

Sorry for the ambiguity. You should understand "vs" like how it is
used in Japan.
I did meant "instead of".

I don't think the I know what is the right result ( I mean spec ) when
I want to find "MotoyaExMaru W5" but "MotoyaExMaru W3" is returned. I
don't know if it is due to fc-match code or my fontconfig setting is

As said above, I am not sure if this is a bug or fontconfig mis-configuration.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
