bug#35816: 26.2; set-frame-font cannot set some fonts which autocomplete


From: Lars Ingebrigtsen
Subject: bug#35816: 26.2; set-frame-font cannot set some fonts which autocomplete suggests due to dashes in names. I.e. gnu-unifont
Date: Tue, 09 Jul 2019 15:22:15 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/27.0.50 (gnu/linux)

I'm unable to reproduce this bug, because Debian doesn't seem to include
any fonts that have a "gnu" in the foundry name (or perhaps I've just
installed the wrong package?).

But in what way is that font description wrong?
