Oh, indeed. Sorry for not checking properly before filing.
@Relli054w: If perhaps you are interested in maintaining this as a
teamwork - and don't mind my packaging style which involves CDBS and
git-buildpackage - then I'd be happy to work together with you. If you
prefer to work alone or want to team up with someone using a different
packaging style, then you came first and I will step down and wish you
good luck on the work.

I agree with above - for Beaker only the sans family is needed that's
why I filed that (as I'd track each upstream zip as a separate source
package), but I would be happy to collaborate on all the PT families,
and extended hinting for web as well.

I disagree with that: Seems to me the common naming practice in Debian
is fonts-<fontname> rather than fonts-<foundry>-<fontname>, and the
former naming makes sense to me: Eventual packages from different
vendors with same fontname would cause problems in Debian so should be
avoided if at all possible. Also when families are packaged separately
they commonly are separated from fontname with a dash in Debian package

I will be using CDBS and git-buildpackage for the package, similar to
how fonts-noto is done. Is that fine with you? If not, would you
perhaps be interested in teaming up with others and maintain it without
me in the loop?
