Re: Bug#892370: Aerial Bold chosen when it should not be

Hi guys,

I don't think it is related to the fontconfig config file that we
patch/ship, but have a look at this:

 fc-match -a aerial | head -n 2
Aerial.ttf: "sans" "Regular"
AerialBd.ttf: "Aerial" "Bold"

The regular variant doesn't identify itself as "Aerial" but merely as
"sans", so the Bold variant is the first one known by the name

Looks like the regular font is broken. Anyway, didn't we decide earlier
in #872766 to drop this package from Debian altogether in favour of
fonts-liberation or fonts-croscore?
