We would welcome more people interested in fonts :D

Most of those fontsquirrel fonts seem to be non-free, but I did find
one that is licensed under the SIL OFL.

Most of the SIL OFL ones google finds are already in Debian:

Miama, Aurulent Sans Mono and Aurulent Sans seem to be the ones we're missing.
