I haven't tried this yet because I'm so used to [Source Code Pro][1], an
Open Font licensed Adobe font. It has wonderful support for much of
Unicode, including some emojis and what not. Unfortunately, it requires
Adobe tools to contribute to, which are, of course, proprietary.

Sadly, it seems that Hack also is built with a proprietary (and
Windows-only) tool, [FontLab Studio][2], too. Perhaps the vfbs can be
opened with FontForge? There's no contribution guidelines, either. Even
Adobe offers that!
