[Bug 1188608] [NEW] Wrong glyph variant for Bulgarian Cyrillic small letter b (б, U+0431)
You have been subscribed to a public bug:
The current Ubuntu font family uses the Serbian/Macedonian glyph variant
for the Cyrillic small letter b (б, U+0431) when text in Bulgarian is
rendered. The affected fonts have a specific substitution table that
replaces the default correct glyph with the wrong language specific one.
This is related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-font-
family/+bug/708578. As suggested in one of the last comments there,
Bulgarian should use the exact same glyphs as Russian in all styles,
including italic. No other font family uses the Serbian/Macedonian
glyphs for Bulgarian, including pre-computer printed material.

pango-view -o /tmp/bulgarian-b.pdf --font 'Ubuntu 24' --width=250 --markup --text "Expected glyphs: <span lang='ru'><big>б <i>б</i></big></span> Actual glyphs: <span lang='bg'><big>б <i>б</i></big></span>"
