Re: Lohit vs Noto Indic fonts

I'm the Noto product owner at Google Fonts, I expect the wider range of styles available by itself would make Noto fonts a better choice :) I would be happy to hear any aspects of Lohit that are superior 

Lohit follows an open source development methodology. One can provide a patch to the sfd file. We are building from source in Fedora.
AFAIK Noto is only available in binary format. (TTF).

But given its already used for many languages, we can definitely go ahead for India fonts as well.
What i suggest:
1. Lets Noto get installed by default.
2. Lets have Lohit fontconfig priority more than Noto, so if someone installing it manually, it will become default for particular Indian languages.
