I think the largest one was about 101KB. So perhaps 1.5MB for all 12 of them.

Agreed. But I know too little about this issue to help with that.
Is it these EXACT files that are needed? Do newer versions cause problems?

Until the files are part of the repositories already being cloned,
they have to come from somewhere else, I expect.
If there's a git command to download
"just these 12 files, not the whole font repository"
then that could be the way to go. But wget is pretty standard on Linux, right?

That's what I gathered, too. I assumed Federico follows this list. The
discussion had
stopped with the question of how to instruct new developers to get the fonts,
and I debated whether to continue it here,
or on the Sourceforge or Rietveld issues.
