           Summary: Suggestion: Remove Bitstream Vera fonts from the default
           Product: OpenMoko
           Version: 2007.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Theming
        AssignedTo: buglog at lists.openmoko.org
        ReportedBy: cwixon at usa.net

The DejaVu font family is better in pretty much every way, and it too is part of
the default image, but task-openmoko-ui still depends on ttf-bitstream-vera.

Nonetheless, ttf-bitstream-vera can be removed with -force-depends, and I
haven't seen any adverse consequences of doing so.  "sans" gets mapped to DejaVu
Sans instead of Bistream Vera Sans, and as a happy side-effect, the arrow keys
on the on-screen keyboard get real arrows instead of empty rectangles (bug #999).
