The Arch font packaging guidelines seem to be few and far between.

Most of the lmt-fonts packages have had both OTF and TTF variants included by the original packager, although the package name suggest only the latter. Perhaps they should have been named lmt-fonts-raleway, etc. in the first place... or broken up into two packages? I'm open to suggestions on how to handle this, I'd just prefer to have all League of Moveable Type font packages behave the same.

The 18 variant version of the Raleway available on the FontSquirrel seems to come from the fork made by Pablo Impallari. His version has already been packaged as otf-impallari-raleway-family and ttf-impallari-raleway-family in AUR. In any case, I'd prefer not to stray from the original upstream source, as I can't judge what are their reasons for not updating the font in their repo...

The Github project is 8 years out of date, there have been 18 variants in this family for ages. Until The League gets their act together on Github this should package some other release, for example the download from FontSquirrel.

Do you know where any Arch font packgaging guidelines talk about including both OTF & TTF forms in the same packgae or not? And also package naming guidelines. I'm wondering if either OTF should be dropped from this package or whether I should drop the OTF package entirely.
