The reason I didn't do that when I did my recent upload was that we
don't have an automated way to create a new tarball from the Android
git repo, nor to automatically check for new versions. Would you be
able to help with those?

For the first one we need a script/get-orig-source target that
automatically creates a tarball from upstream stuff.

For the second one, the Droid fonts folks need to provide versioned
tarballs on their website. I guess it will be hard to contact them and
or convince them to do that though.

Would you like to join the fonts team?
