Just a note that Brandon just commented on the patchset:
"We discussed this patch today during our weekly design team meeting
and how to move forward. At this point in time we are leaning towards
+2'ing this but we want to have a bit of discussion internally before
We'll have something at the end of the day, so we're asking that no
one merge it until then."
I think that's a completely reasonable request.
Thanks to everyone who's been speaking up in support of positive
changes to our typography while also being constructive and critical
as appropriate. I think one of the cool things about Wikimedia is that
we're willing to try and experiment even at the risk of causing
breakage and disruption, but the flip side of that is listening to
each other and optimizing things together towards the right outcome.
We've got tons of smart people around the world helping with this,
which is awesome. As always, I have confidence in our collective
ability to figure things out :)
