Looks better, thanks!

Some issues.

. What you currently provide in
is version 20140220-36.1; however, the previous version available from this
repository was 20140220-38.1, which is confusing. You should definitely
provide a more recent version number :-)

. aakar-medium.ttf as distributed in your recent 36.1 package is older! It
identifies itself as 001.100, while 38.1 contains version 0.2 (you can see that
with `ftdump -n'). I suggest that you apply your script to the newer font; it
contains less characters, which is probably better.

. I suggest that you improve your script so that it increases (or modifies) the
version entry in the `name' table, probably also adding a comment that mentions
the openSuSE modifications.

. Rekha.ttf in 38.1 is replaced with Rekha-medium.ttf – note that we have the
same issue as with aakar: you should use the font with the newer version.

. A similar version problem occurs with padmaa-Bold.

. The script doesn't work correctly for padmaa-Bold: I still get `jumping
digits'. I suggest that you remove bytecode from all characters *except* the
Indic ones.

Regarding the newer fonts: I wonder where to get them... Apparently, they
aren't in the github repositories.
