I have noticed you have corrected the tonos issue and added the missing
basic Greek glyphs to FreeMonoBoldOblique. I believe we can now compute
the TrueType splines and release the fonts to the public?

Today's release is not going to mark any epochal achievement. Even though
now all Free UCS fonts conform to MES-1 Unicode subset, we have to realize
that MES-1 is actually insufficient even for very basic European use, as
it lacks support for Greek and Cyrillic scripts. Free UCS fonts are
actually vastly exceeding the requirements for MES-1 and are slowly
approaching MES-2, which somewhat more deserves the name "Minimum European
Subset", and which we can set as our next major goal. Along the way, I 
hope we will also make some progress on covering non-European Latin use, 
Indic scripts etc. With the level of activity exhibited during last two 
months, I believe we will achieve MES-2 conformance some time in early 

With kind regards,
