  [2 mod] Mono: Hinting: i and j tittles too small

Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm on Fedora 15 with www.infinality.net's FreeType patches (basically
  hinting only in the y-direction, x-direction is ignored, and a few
  things to improve contrast). I've added Ubuntu Mono to the "TT
  Instructed Font" list (read: autohint: FcFalse, hinting: FcTrue,
  hintstyle: 3).  I'm not sure how the patches handle fonts that don't
  contain full hinting instructions, so maybe take this bug report with
  a grain of salt. The 'thinness' of the font compared to Ubuntu Regular
  however makes me think that autohinting is active somehow... See
  attached screenshot with debug characters. Compare the tittles to the
  ones in Ubuntu Regular (see menu of terminal). They either hang too
  low or are too small. Or both. The dots on umlauts like äöü look fine.

  Side note: fontforge says font version 0.80, sfnt revision 0,799988. I
  grabbed the font archive directly off the repository server and took
  the file that had 0ubuntu3 and +console in it, iirc. No idea is this
  is the newest. I wasted 2.5 hours trying to add the ppa to an ubuntu
  live dvd until I got tired and opened the URL in a browser. That
  didn't work on F15 with FF6 but on the live DVD it did. Huh.
