Re: [Fedora-fonts-list] [Bug 490609] New: Font selector is limiting styles for default aliases



Hi Nicolas,

I'm not sure how others feel, but CC'ing this list on any font-related
bug in fedora and GNOME sounds a bit excessive to me.  In particular,
upstream bugs are just that, upstream.  Nothing fedora-specific to them.
