I'm waiting for Nicolas to speak up. I thought I fixed the Japanese dekstop
issue, or at least proposed a solution last time he brought it up with me.
Apparently, he isn't on the list and is very busy with other work.
But he sent me the following message:
Concerning Droid, I think the problem with current rules is not the
rules themselves, but their ordering. I suspect that splitting the droid
fontconfig ruleset file in two (or more) with different priorities may
well fix the problem, but that needs testing and I haven't found the
time to do so right now
Of course I may be wrong and what we're trying to do with droid may just
be contrary to some assumption a bit of fontconfig code makes. But we
have not exhausted testing with current code yet.
