Feedback on this:

  • I think it is reasonable to allow for both to be installed. Some graphics applications make better use of OTF vs TTF, and vise-versa. Given the font is niche enough, I would like to think people that choose one or the other may be able to understand what best works for their usecase.
  • We could probably do with patterning TTF files into font-firago-ttf and doing a replaces of font-firago to font-firago-ttf. We can keep the same "main" (so not renaming the name in package.yml itself), we just aren't producing a package for it, similar to what we do for LibreOffice.
