Size is somehow constrained in Debian Installer, so I'd prefer
getting more input and advice before replacing
fonts-lklug-sinhala-udeb byt fonts-notohinted-udeb in D-I

Perhaps the Noto maintainers might consider splitting Noto into script
based debs. IIRC, that's what was done in Fedora.

I'd be happy to improve the usefulnes of the Noto package(s), but will
need more guidance.

I suspect easiest approach would be for debian-installer to use Noto
generally - i.e. replace not only the font for Sinhala but (I guess) a
larger range of region-specific fonts.

If debian-installer installs locale-specific fonts only when needed, or
there are reasons to not shift generally to Noto, then indeed there is a
benefit in creating udeb packages for smaller regions.

I can create a udeb specifically for Sinhala.  Or I can create a udeb
for each single font part of the Noto deb.  What do the debian-installer
team consider useful?

Chagning the D-I font to Noto for all languages hasn't been validated...and the current font is well tested and accepted.

So, as a consequence, I'd prefer a udeb that would be suited for Sinhala.
