The packaging itself builds flawlessly.

Alas, in use, the font severely corrupts text:

It would be nice if you could mention somewhere why the font isn't built
from sources (and thus is in contrib).

I'm not sure if shipping both ttf and otf is needed, they are redundant for
most uses.

Shipping EOT is probably a waste of space -- it's not supported anywhere but
Internet Explorer, not even on Edge.  And there's no non-EOLed version of MSIE
that doesn't support WOFF.

An imaginary friend squared is a real enemy.
