Thanks for mentioning them.

It looks like you are using Glyphsapp and its native format for
development of the fonts. Since Glyphsapp is proprietary software that
is not available in Debian, this means that Debian won't be able to
build the font from source and our users won't be able to modify and
build the font from source on their Debian systems. As a result, we
will not be able to put the fonts into Debian main. They could be put
into contrib (not officially part of Debian) if someone wants to
package them though.
