Hi Samuel,

I like it that you use a sans-serif font now.
Are there any other options but "Liberation Sans"? I guess the choice is
very limited because we need to support many languages.

My personal preferences are

 * For headings: "Open Sans" or "Source Sans Pro" (because they have
   many weights (Light, Normal, Semibold, Bold, Extrabold))
 * For continous text Gentium or "Linux Libertine".
 * For shorter texts "Open Sans".

What do others think?

While I myself would love having a different default font, we've talked to
the Engineering Steering Committee and, unfortunately, it's been decided
that we stay with Liberation fonts. These fonts have the same metrics as
Times New Roman, Arial, and Courier, which are basically on every operating
system (if not those fonts, then their counterparts). Using these fonts
guarantees that the documents keep the same layout on any platform.
