Slashed-zero Liberation fonts - where are they? Fedora? Online? YOU?

Hi! I read that the Liberation fonts are available with slashed (or dotted) zeroes, in particular that this version of the fonts was packaged with Fedora 9 and beyond. No such luck. I CAN find some slashed-zero fonts, but i'm having some issues with them. Since liberation is a top-quality font, i am hoping i can find the slashed-zero version of them.

Anybody know where they are, or if you have them, can you send a link or attach the actual files? Thanks! :-)

My understanding was that only the Liberation Mono font had the differentiated zeroes; the Liberation Sans and Serif fonts have a standard zero.

You can download the Liberation Mono font with a dotted zero from the current Debian Squeeze distro (just install dpkg and use it to pull apart the package and extract the actual font files).

That would explain why I only could find the Liberation Mono font with either slashed or dotted zero...!

Thanks for your help. :-/
