It can be done but since upstream themselves won't split the fonts, we
manually splitting them will be more work. So I'm just waiting till
upstream themselves split it into multiple binary.

Also upstream doesn't use tags in their repo, if they had used it we
could used watch file to track individual tags just like we do in
fonts-android (Thanks to Yamane San).

So lets hold on a bit till upstream organizes their source more.

Since you have already registered on Alioth ask some DD you know to send
a signed mail to NM Front Desk requesting them to add you to
collab-maint. Since you are DM I think you yourself can request them.

Yes I can generate that pristine-tar ball, you can also do simply use
git.debian.org to clone and generate the pristine source. I did same for
importing new version of noto today.
