Re: Request: Using Rubik Webfont from Google Fonts Directory in debian.org


I wouldn't consider having Chinese or Korean support disqualifies the this as a webfont. Actually, using Chinese web fonts without proper subsetting can result in large (2MB~) file loading, therefore it is a disadvantage.

Most Chinese and Korean websites only apply webfonts for Latin patters.

I think styling is a small part that contributes to the quality of the website. Content is the king, and we should have better content for the homepage.

This criteria from Paul is a serious requirement. Have a look at the git
tree of the webwml repository to see which languages are currently used
within the Debian websites on www.d.o


Given the information I've found about the Rubik font on fontsquirrel
this font is lacking at least the support for Chinese, Hebrew and
Korean. This will disqualify the font for using within the website I'd say.
