hey folks--

https://github.com/CatharsisFonts/Cormorant looks like a nice OFL font.

The author recommends using Glyphs [0] as a font editor, which is not
free software, but the author is willint to produce UFO [1] files for
folks who want them.

the author (Christian Thalmann) clearly states that the Glyphs sources
are the preferred form for editing because he prefers that editor.  I
don't know enough about the difference between UFO and Glyphs source
files to know how significant the difference in format is.

Is this something the fonts team would consider adopting in a UFO form,
or would it be off-limits (possibly relegated to non-free or contrib)?
