That’s a nice finding PhistucK!

I just fixed it.

If you can help with refactoring the CSS call, that would be great! Take
a look at the repositories I mention below.

# About the CORS header and the SVN Files:

The web servers *are* sending the CORS headers for the fonts, but Fastly
strips them out —I haven’t realized that.

I worked a way to enable them [0] only for SVG files through Fastly.
I’ll take a look later for improving our Fastly configs.

If you want to see source, not everything is available on GitHub, but I
can give you access to our own installation of Gerrit [2].

# Repositories you might want to see

* Varnish/Fastly configuration [1]
* The Skin AND extensions tweaks we are using [3]
* The CSS you want to take a look at [4][5]

Thanks for your help!
