From the discussion in the upstream JOSM issue [0] it's become clear
that the Noto font is not sharp as the Droid font it's meant to replace.

In response to this concern raised by the JOSM developers I created an
issue in the upstream noto-fonts issue tracker [1] in which I asked if
it's possible to improve the sharpness at small font sizes.

Do you have any suggestions how to improve the Noto font to be as sharp
as the Droid font at small font sizes, before I raise the issue on the
freetype-devel list as suggested in the noto-fonts issue?
