I don't have the time at the moment to deal with package maintenance. If somebody wants to take over this package, please send me an email to my maintainer E-Mail and I will transfer ownership to you, depending on your experience.

This package is out-of-date, the new one is on GitHub: https://github.com/google/roboto

> If yes I would suggest that this package should use github as source just like the ttf-roboto-mono package does.

@SunRed I did not even know there was a GitHub repository. I will look into it in the next few days if this is a good option.

@lolzballs Have you tried using these fonts instead?
https://github.com/google/fonts/tree/master/apache/roboto
Does it make any difference? If yes I would suggest that this package should use github as source just like the ttf-roboto-mono package does. Otherwise there is something wrong with your configuration.
Have you tried using Infinality-bundle for improved font rendering? I guess the main issue in your case are wrong settings/font rendering.

I'm having weird font-weight issues in Chrome and Firefox, where they end up looking like this: https://i.imgur.com/nrJphbrl.png, with font-weight: 500 and font-family: Roboto. On YouTube, they use font-weight: bold, and it looks like http://imgur.com/55g7rIil.png.

@akurei: I think you shouldn’t use `fc-cache -f` but rather `fc-cache -s`.

-f Force re-generation of apparently up-to-date cache files, overriding the timestamp checking.
-s Only scan system-wide directories, omitting the places located in the user's home directory.

If I remember correctly, once upon a time someone made a font package using `fc-cache -f`. Over the centuries it spread by being copied over and over. I was told it was not needed after installing fonts, probably because the cache files are not “apparently up-to-date” in such a case. Correct me if I’m wrong.

@Markus00000

If you want to go ahead and do it yourself. If you don't want to, I will write the PKGBUILD on Sunday. I don't have time before Sunday.
