          I dropped the lato fonts when I ported Brody's work because they are 5.4MB worth of additional stuff that would need to be served from jenkins.io on one of the most popular pages.

           

          If this is important (I didn't think it would be), please re-structure the CSS such that every single variant of the font (5.4MB worth, eep!) is not unnecessarily loaded.

          R. Tyler Croy After a little bit of research, I figured out we can remove all but the .woff files, which brings the file size down to 1.3mb. Hopefully this is more doable.

          Brody Maclean, yeah that's a bit more reasonable. I still think it's absolutely bananas to spend that much bandwidth on slightly prettier fonts, but I recognize that (as a Linux user) fonts are clearly immaterial to me

           

          I think that would be fine to incorporate for the Blue Ocean pages but I wouldn't want to incorporate that site-wide.
