Subject: FreeSerif: Glyphs for U+2293 (square cap) and U+2294 (square cup) inverted
Date: Sat, 11 Feb 2012 22:06:21 +0100

Package: ttf-freefont
Version: 20100919-1
Severity: normal


the characters for U+2293 (Square cap, ⊓) and U+2294 (Square cup, ⊔) seem to be inverted in the FreeSerif font. This can be verified by opening FreeSerif.sfd (from the source package) in FontForge, or by selecting this font in a program (e.g. Emacs, or LibreOffice) and typing those characters.

I suppose this is trivially fixable using FontForge, but I encountered an error message that said I was trying to create a glyph that refered to itself. I was able to work around that by blindly clicking on "Unlink reference", but this resulted in a patch that looked bigger than it needs to be and is not attached here for this reason.
