I'm up to sortsmill-tools in my once-per-release-upload-everything run
so I'm revisiting this thread.

Why fork FontForge instead of contributing to upstream?

Why does it have the same name as Barry Schwartz' sortsmill-tools?

Will future versions of Prociono and Goudy Book Letter build with the
FontForge sortsmill-tools?

What is the future of  Barry Schwartz' sortsmill-tools?
