May I suggest helping upstream to come up with reproducible buildpath
instead of creating a Debian-specific one ? A much better long-term
strategy for everyone.
You can look into libfont-ttf-scripts-perl (and newer repository
version) which contain the volt2ttf and related utilities and can work
with text-based representations of the smart features. (vtp files).
Type designers are increasingly moving towards using the .fea features
BTW, if you haven't noticed yet, there are significant issues with the
licensing of this font that still need fixing (it's sadly a non-standard
mishmash of licenses with little coherence, legal validity or practical
I would expect our ftpmasters to seriously frown on this and reject
it!). TTBOMK various people (including Mozilla) are in touch with
upstream to get them to re-release under a community-approved license.
