Description Nicolas Mailhot 2009-06-21 00:21:07 UTC
WWS expects font styles to be built like this:

weight width slant [regular]

the condensed dejavu variants use

width weight slant [regular]

instead. They should be fixed (and condensed replaced by the right WWS qualifier)

I believe that this would be a net long-term win, and short-term the problems a lot of apps have with selecting Condensed means not too many users would be impacted.
