For Inconsolata I created the fontforge sources from the available 
truetype formats, which were the ones most up-to-date 
(http://git.io/vWePO). Exact procedure: opening with fontforge save as 
sfdir. When preparing files for fontain.org I prefer sfd/sfdir, ufo, 
otf, ttf in this this order. The vbf sources often available are 
exclusive to FontLab, as far as I know.

IMPORTANT: main incentive for fontain.org is the possibility to export 
fonts to necessary formats, e.g. for use with LaTeX, in a easy way and 
create a interface to browse converted fonts. Collecting the sources is 
a side effect and I try my best to have the versions in the repository 
up-to-date (already not true for Inconsolata). Therefore the sources 
should not be considered a 'fork' but a 'mirror'.

Best regards,


  Christoph Haag
