Fortunately it was public domain, so we could use it. The trouble was – so we installed the Roboto package, and then a few months later we did a system update, and the font was still Roboto, but the font had changed. And it didn’t came anywhere near as good. Google had done something to the metrics of the font. I looked it and went Eugh! – that’s not what I wanted. So actually, what we have is an old version of Roboto, that’s got it’s own package. I call it Piboto, just to distinguish it from Roboto. I can’t keep following the Roboto package, because it has changed the font and I don’t like the new one.
