Re: [g-i] Use of ttf-dejavu for rendering Georgian text


sorry for the late reply, I am still catching up with the messages
back from vacation.

Yes, this would be fine. I have taken a look at the screenshots
provided and the quality of rendering Georgian text is acceptable on

BPG Glaho typeface from ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts-udeb is visually
better, meaning it better represents the characteristics of Georgian
alphabet, but the glyphs in ttf-dejavu are well readable and therefore

I no longer see reason why we should use an extra package of
ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts-udeb in g-i.

May I inquire about the origin of the Georgian glyphs in ttf-dejavu?
