I don't think so. The fonts-roboto package currently only provides .tff
files, which are useless for the web. The sources aren't the same.
Also, I don't think the FTP masters would like to have even more binary
packages and dependencies. If these can be avoided, it's best for the
Debian infrastructure, I heard.
