Comment 1 Roman Kuznetsov 2021-04-08 09:09:41 UTC
Why is here an UX opinion? It's just an enhancement for some font updating. Or may be I missed something?
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2021-04-08 09:45:50 UTC
We are on 0.131, so updating makes sense.

Code pointer:



download.lst -> FONT_CULMUS

List contains 

* DavidCLM (our tarball with 0.131 ships ttf, 0.133 has otf)
* FrankRuehlCLM
* MiriamCLM
* MiriamMonoCLM
* NachlieliCLM

solenv/flatpak-manifest.in -> culmus-0.131
Comment 3 Eyal Rozenberg 2021-04-23 10:24:52 UTC
So, what happens when LO offers a version of a font which is older than the version otherwise available on the target system? Are both installed? Is there overwriting? Hiding?
