[Bug 784549] Re: Mono: Style: Cyrillic Ghe Г has incorrect bottom serif and looks strange
Hello Alex, Г has been fixed in the 0.910-prerelease Ubuntu Mono
received from Dalton Maag. This PDF should shows the Russian, Ukrainian
and some other Balkan Cyrillic glyphs as they are in the
The 0.910-prelease has a number of other fixes (this is a good thing),
but also some regressions introduced against the 0.89 currently in
circulation (not so ideal). The regressions include glyph changes to
earlier versions that had already been fixed in 0.89 and because the
baseline spacing has been increased, causing document reflow.
The problem exists on how to work from the binary TTFs, and perform a
three-way merge, keeping the manual hinting, backing out the
regressions, but keeping bug fixes and improvements. Help, guidance and
suggestions would be appreciated; we have the source, but the manual
hinting and VOLT engineering is applied afterwards!

The serif on the uppercase Г in Cyrillic in the monospace font seems
very weird to a native Cyrillic reader such as me (for Serbian
Ideally the design should be changed to the same as in the Ubuntu
proportional fonts, just a plain two-stroke character, suitably
proportioned to fill out the monospace cell when used in runs of
1. Monospace Г to have bottom serif removed
2. Redrawn as two strokes, correctly proportioned for monospace Cyrillic usage
