Comment (by gk):

 Thanks for this helpful comment. The idea of building the fonts from
 source is pretty interesting. Right now we are shipping the fonts as they
 come from Google. I opened #26302 for investigating the source code

 There is no need to have anything in Debian in order to make progress, but
 thanks for the offer trying to move things forward in case it were needed.

 And, no, I don't see any blockers other than someone sitting down, writing
 the patch, building the bundle and testing it. Am I seeing this right,
 that this font alone is 7MB in size? That's quite a lot...
