Severity: normal

I'm afraid some doofus provided you with an incomplete patch for the Braille
fix.  As fontforge is really unfriendly to git, making random changes all
around the sfd file, the patch was made by editing .sfd by hand.  Alas,
three glyphs, U+2840, U+2880 and U+28C0 resided elsewhere in the file,
instead of being together with the range as everything else.

I've taken the liberty of committing an update directly to the Fonts team

Note that this and hundreds of other bugs are long since upstream, but
there's no new release because of technical and political problems, see
