It is a superb companion to Source Sans/Code (both of which we already ship) that has just been released. It is available under the SIL Open Font license, and looks great under Windows.
Comment 1 V Stuart Foote 2014-05-21 17:02:49 UTC
Setting new -- enhancement.

Likely that this will be picked up quickly in the FOSS world, so LibreOffice will have to handle content using the font across its components. In the scheme of things the additional size will be off set by compatibility. So I'd say add it.
Comment 2 Francisco 2014-05-21 23:30:17 UTC
I think that the released version of this typeface is nice, I like it. But... there is *no* italic/slanted version. In my opinion, as a user, I disagree at leaset until somebody release an italic version.
Comment 3 Urmas 2014-05-22 07:02:05 UTC
Source Sans/Serif should not be included _at all_ as they contain no Cyrillic characters.

Or else!?
Comment 5 Tin Man 2014-05-22 09:26:26 UTC
Agreed that it should be added in the future, but I would hold off until it has italic variants.
Comment 6 Stefan Knorr (astron) 2014-05-22 15:30:44 UTC
The consensus seems to be that the font is nice, but not ready => setting to WONTFIX for the moment.

Re-open this when the font has grown a true italics variant.

The status of the italic variant can be found at this github issue.

Comment 9 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2018-08-18 19:53:58 UTC
Italic version release yesterday and as the source family wasnt removed with bug 103080, then we could add it to complete the family or remove the family.
Comment 10 Heiko Tietze 2018-08-19 08:17:34 UTC
We should discuss Source Serif Pro again.
Comment 11 Tomaz Vajngerl 2018-08-21 14:21:36 UTC
We already have SourceCodePro and SourceSansPro. SourceSerifPro is highly needed to have a complete font family.
Comment 12 Heiko Tietze 2018-08-22 18:32:00 UTC
So let's do. Taking the task.
