I just made a new build that touches on this bug. Please have a look.

As I said, I doubt the Ge + ogonek combination, and have not implemented that.

Hi Hsing-yen,
something went wrong with your last upload.
The file name looks odd...

Hello Hsing-yen,

Could you please produce a complete list? It is very time-consuming to do these in small groups.

The A-ring is easy. E: I don't like stacked diacritics much. I'll think about it.

Regarding Г̧ -- are you sure this can't be represented by one of the existing precomposed forms of ge? Must it be precisely an ogonek?

Thanks, but there is still have some issues for А̊, Г̧ and Ё̄. А̊ is used in Selkup language, Г̧ was used in Karelian language, Ё̄ is used in Even, Evenki, Nanai, Negidal, Kildin Sami, Selkup, Ulch languages.

Good enough.
These marks weren't being positioned at all with respect to the glyphs mentioned.

Hi Steve,

I referred that there are some Cyrillic letters using tilde are using by Khinalug speaking people, they are living in some villages of Khinalug and Gülüstan in the mountains of Quba Rayon, northern Azerbaijan. Er with caron is used in Nivkh language. Then some letters using two diacritical marks, as Wikipedia shown on, will positioned incorrect in FreeSans.

Hi Hsing-yen

For what purpose are tildes placed on these Cyrillic letters?

We only make rules for positionings that make some sense.

Hi Steve,

I copied some non-slavonic Cyrillic letters from Wikipedia (you can see them at Template:Infobox Cyrillic letter), they are using Combining Diacritical Marks, but some of them positioned incorrect in FreeSerif:
А̃, Ә̃, Е̃, И̃, О̃, Р̌, У̃

Then I found more letters looks incorrect in FreeSans.
