Hi Jonas,

- The package looks good. It can display 骨 (U+9AA8) for Simplified
  Chinese and Traditional Chinese correctly in gnome-terminal. Thanks
  for the work.

- LibreOffice Writer does not display 骨 (U+9AA8) correctly in
  Traditional Chinese. I think this is not related to fonts-noto-cjk
  since it cannot display correctly even using separated font files.

- The expect result of 骨 (U+9AA8) is described in [0].
