I responded to the bug report.

In order to see the progress of a bug, either make a proper Savannah
account and submit the bug as that user, or I can attach your e-mail
address to bug reports. your report, you said at first there was a problem with
FreeSans, and then that recent versions do not have the problem
(thanks for noticing!  I think you're the first to write in about

But I don't know how you feel about the current state.  If you see
further specific problems, please don't hesitate to file a bug report.
 We do our best to attend to them promptly.

Also: I think the Hebrew range in FreeSerif is a mess (although I
spent a lot of time trying to improve it).  I think the glyphs didn't
even originate from the same font.  The roman and bold are definately
not in accord.  Furthermore, I don't think the current letters fit the
rest of FreeFont very well. So...I mean to replace the whole thing.
I've just been busy.
