Bug Description

The repo description is currently:

Inspired by the original News Gothic, which found an eminently useful life in print media news coverage, the goal of this project is to design a highly readable open font suitable for large bodies of text, even at small sizes, and that is available at multiple weights. In addition to the readability and weight, however, the project is extending News Gothic's glyph coverage to alphabets derived from Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek, including the accent marks and diacritics required by languages outside of Western Europe.

If you wish to contribute, the most valuable thing you can do is test out the font on real-world documents and Web sites, and provide feedback -- particularly with Cyrillic and Greek characters, which are entirely new designs.

At the moment, the stable release is regular weight only. Italics, boldface, and more are on the roadmap. You can find the latest release in the downloads panel on the right side of this page, plus on the project homepage, where updates and test samples appear as well.

Is this still correct?

Is the description in https://github.com/google/fonts/blob/master/ofl/newscycle/DESCRIPTION.en_us.html okay?
