Package: sphinx-rtd-theme-common
Version: 0.4.2+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Current Lato font files (.woff2 ones) seem to be from same version as the
fonts-lato package ones. Those are not latest version available, and they have
a problem that breaks generated doc for some browsers:

> Update, August 2014: The previous version of Lato included Extended Latin
characters in the Latin subset.

(from https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Lato )

This was reported to Blender as it affects its API doc (I use Debian sphinx
packages to generate it): https://developer.blender.org/T57957

I can confirm that replacing lato font files by those from release 2.015 (from
http://www.latofonts.com/) fixes the issue for us.

This may be related to those two reports on fonts-lato:
* Please upgrade to newest upstream release (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-
* woff and woff2 files required (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-

Best regards,
