Hello all,

Consider the addition of the Cyrillic Modern fonts to TeX Live.

The Cyrillic Modern fonts are based on the Computer Modern fonts designed in 
METAFONT by D. E. Knuth and released in the Type 1 format by the American 
Mathematical Society under the SIL Open Font License (OFL). The Cyrillic Modern 
fonts are intended to make the Cyrillic letters with classical shapes typical 
to the modern fonts. Currently, the fonts add support for the Russian language, 
the numero sign and quotation marks required for the Russian typesetting.

Several Latin letters are changed making the Cyrillic Modern fonts closer to 
modern-style fonts, in particular, to Monotype Modern. So, these fonts break 
metric compatibility with the Computer Modern fonts. Currently, several 
lowercase characters have been changed in italic fonts. For consistency, the 
modified mathematical italic fonts are provided.

The fonts can be downloaded at https://sourceforge.net/projects/cyrillic-modern/
