@amoka can you please remove conflicts from PKGBUILD, because it has no conflicts with fira sans and both can be installed and used without any problem. I want to use both of these packages, but some of my packages depends on fira-sans and it can not be removed.

Should this package include a font config alias "Fira Sans"->"FiraGO" as it conflicts with the Fira Sans packages?

@Celti Someone asked me about OTF version as well on Reddit and I replied with: "I always thought too, but tested the OTF version and had some rendering issues on my 4k and 2k monitors. Not only this, but few other fonts. While researching I found one of the Hack devs on github recommending TTF on linux, so I decided to make it with TTF's just to be safe initially!"

Reddit discussion about FiraGO:

Hack font discussion (TTF vs. OTF): There you can find @chrissimpkins recommendation: "In general, I recommend the ttf files for screen use on Linux platforms."

Let me know if have issues with TTF over OTF files and I might update this PKGBUILD to include it too. Thanks!

Is there a particular reason this doesn't build otf-fira-go as well? Here's a split PKGBUILD almost identical to the one for fira-sans in community:

pkgname=(ttf-fira-go otf-fira-go)
pkgdesc="An independent open-source typeface: FiraGO"
depends=('fontconfig' 'xorg-font-utils')

function _package {
    cd FiraGO-$_commit/Fonts

    case "$1" in
            pkgdesc="An independent open-source typeface: FiraGO (TrueType)"
            cd FiraGO_TTF_1001
            pkgdesc="An independent open-source typeface: FiraGO (OpenType)"
            cd FiraGO_OTF_1001

    # Prepare destination directory
    install -dm755 "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/$installdir"

    # Install fonts
    for font in "${fonts[@]}"; do
        install -m644 "$font" "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/$installdir"

    install -D -m644 ../../OFL.txt "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/OFL.txt"

for _pkgname in ${pkgname[@]}; do
    eval "function package_$_pkgname() { _package $_pkgname; }"

Should it really conflict with fira sans? On the website it says they created it so users can install both fonts.
