Hi Cristian, everyone,

Has anyone thought about i18n issues at the time of choosing this font ? A quick look at the 
embedded character set shows that this font lacks support for Czech, Polish, Hungarian and Romanian 
alphabets (this for Latin based scripts); it also lacks support for Greek, it also lacks support 
for Cyrillic. Not a word about Asian or Arabic scripts.

The choice of Vegur as the branding font for LibreOffice goes back many years, back to the start (2010) I believe. You make a good point, if it's missing many characters for many languages, and we should fix that.

Why not choose from SIL fonts ? Their i18n support is comprehensive (and font quality is awesome).

Thanks for the suggestion -- do you have a specific font in mind?

Or, perhaps the sister project considers that only 'Western' languages "... have digital content created 
years ago and stored in old, outdated and proprietary document formats." ?

Not at all, and clearly Vegur is lacking. Let's find a font that works is many more scripts, and adapt the flyers accordingly...
