Looks good, thanks – I'm not an expert for those glyphs, so I might
have missed stuff.

OK from me.  Jürgen?

Really?  Why?  As far as I understand the issue, this character is
only necessary for creating ligatures.  If this is correct, no glyph
is needed at all.  Instead, the FontForge script should be extended to
create a proper 'GSUB' table that maps input ligatures to the
corresponding Feta glyphs.

This should be easy to do.
