Package: fonts-inconsolata
Version: 001.010-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I found out on wikipedia that the inconsolata font has been forked on
Google Foot Directory. It has been fully hinted and a bold variant

Project directory:


18 September 2012 (Alexei Vanyashiin) Inconsolata bold v. 1.014
- Fixed spacing issue associated with the character "4" and "0"
- Applied ttfautohint (to fix windows rendering problem that occurred in
  v 1.000)

7 December 2011 (Kirill Tkachev) Inconsolata Bold v. 1.000
- Completed Bold version of Inconsolata in VBF format.


That would probably close https://bugs.debian.org/618568 which state the
bold font is too wide in konsole.  I only have Medium and Oblique
myself but that is an other story.
