Hello all,

Unfortunately, the Comic Sans font is very popular in
primary/secondary schools (Canada). It would be nice if there were a
comparable/compatible font included with LibreOffice for students who
use Comic. Maybe TSCu_Comic?

So, I don't have anything against a comic-y font. I just wanted to point
out that Comic Sans specifically is a rather amateurish affair.
As to TSCu_Comic: While it isn't as worn as Comic Sans, it doesn't look
like a high quality font either – additionally, the glyph set is
basically just Ascii.

I got another question. Do we want more general-purpose fonts like e.g.
Droid Sans, Open Sans ... or also some that are a bit special and only
apropriate in certain use-cases?

I think general purpose fonts are the way to go here. It's unlikely,
many users will need [1] – though Metallica fans might like it.
That said, Jayme e. g. proposed a Script font and I certainly think
that's a good idea.
Also, there's a bug concerned with adding the STIX maths fonts [2],
which aren't general purpose, but would still be nice to have.

Keep in mind, depending on the number fonts we decide for, we might also
have to remove others (given that LibreOffice isn't exactly a
lightweight download as is). There's no firm number set just yet,
