I'm maintaining the Play font in Debian, which currently builds the Play 
font from the sfd sources (attached) which was present in the google code 
repository. And I've been trying to figure out a bug[0] where the sfd files 
generate a rather different font than the ttf files provided by google 

First, I noticed that the sfd files are now gone with the move to GitHub, 
does this mean that the ttf files would be considered the canonical source 
for the font?

Second, I have a few fixes that I've applied as a patch (attached) to the 
sfd files, to fix intersection, naming, and integral points, which still 
seems to be relevant for the current ttf files as well?

Lastly, and the main point, is there any specifics on how to generate the 
ttf files from sfd sources to make sure they are as similar to the google 
web fonts ttf:s as possible?
