I usually do a "install everything" and "update all", so I don't have to scratch my
head asking "in what collection does that package live"? I've never used Mongolian
fonts, as far as I remember, but sometimes I use Greek fonts, at least to show
TeX capabilities.

I can't think of a reason why they've added the Greek fonts, it might be something
related to babel, which loads them in some cases.

That's an obvious mistake, since their package doesn't have anything named like grmn.

I'll try to write them. But I suspect that other "install everything" people will have the same
