Norbert and all,

It seems I added the t2alm*.fd files in 2012, sent to me by Vladimir
Lomov (cc'd) as part of an update to the Russian translation of the TL
(I unfortunately misspelled his name in my commit msg.  Sorry Vladimir!)

I do not know for a fact where they came from, but I speculate that
Vladimir created them by copying and modifying the t2acm*.fd files that
are part of the standard latex cyrillic bundle.  Vladimir?
(Unfortunately the t2alm* files incorrectly say they are part of cyrillic
which, so far as I can see, is not correct.  That should be fixed.)

Anyway, I am not sure what the best outcome would be.  The LM fonts
don't actually include Cyrillic, so far as I know (*Latin* Modern, after
all).  The t2alm*.fd files use the same lh fonts (larm, etc.) that the
t2acm*.fd files do.
