"Ubuntu Light" font has heavier weight than "Ubuntu"
Status in ubuntu-font-family-sources package in Ubuntu:
After upgrading from Vivid to Wily, pages using the "Ubuntu light" font actually renders with a weight heavier than the regular one in web pages.
This happens with Chrome/Chromium and also the Ubuntu browser.
After manually reinstalling the 0.80-0ubuntu6 version from Vivid (in
place of 0.83-0ubuntu1), the issue is fixed.
