Dear All,

You are probably misunderstanding.  We are talking about updating the
currently used Adobe metrics with better ones -- from Adobe!

And the real question behind the poll is what version of the Adobe metrics to use - PostScript 2 or PostScript 3.

If a considerable part of the grops output is handled by hardware,
then we have to be conservative and use PS 2 fonts.

On the other hand, PS 3 version has more glyphs and is likely to
be supported by PS/PDF software (ghostscript, Acrobat Reader, host fonts)
and some modern hardware.

           Sincerely, Michail
