Hi ng0,

Woow, impressive piece of work!

To me, that clearly suggests that we need a function to produce the
package, like:

  (define (google-noto-font-package name hash)
      (name (string-append "font-google-" (camel-case->hyphens name)))

Could you look into that?

That’s a bummer.  Are you sure there’s no versioned URL somewhere?

Alternatively, could we build from source with FontForge or something?
An example of that is ‘font-linuxlibertine’.
