Package: fonts-noto-mono
Version: 20201027-3
Severity: grave


For unknown reasons, Noto Mono looks completely different after
I upgraded my unstable machines recently, to the point that it's
not the same font anymore (for one, it has serifs). This affects
multiple machines, both rxvt-unicode and gnome-terminal, both
X11 and Wayland, and goes away if I downgrade. Compare the stable
and unstable fonts below (the version of fonts-noto-mono installed
when urxvt started is the sole difference between the two windows):


The upper (stable) also matches what the font looks like if I
look at https://www.google.com/get/noto/#mono-mono. You can see
some fragments of it in the screenshot; look at e.g. the lowercase

gnome-terminal doesn't even list Noto Mono in its list of available
fonts, so I'm wondering if it does some sort of fallback and that
the font just is completely broken somehow.
