Re: [libreoffice-design] Adding Mittaphap / Droid Sans / Khmer OS Fonts to LibreOffice for Lao, Thai, and Khmer Support


Hi Robert,
We discussed fonts not too long ago [1].
We decided against Droid Sans, as it doesn't offer an Italic variant.
I don't think we could offer Khmer, as the MPL, which LibreOffice is
licensed under, is more permissive than the LGPL. I'm not sure, though.
As for Mittaphap, I haven't heard of it. Could you describe it a bit more,
similar to the way fonts are described at
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Wishlists/Fonts? Is it a good
font typographically?

I'm thinking we should bundle Noto Sans [2] and Noto Serif [3], though, as
those have the goal of covering all of Unicode.

Thoughts?
