Same thing as what happened to Vera. The various people wanting to
make the fonts evolve need to agree on a new FLOSS upstream like it
happened to DejaVu. IMHO we should not package all the MGOpen

Already done but now the packages await review (half of them at least).

If you know tex please do Computer Modern Unicode - he's stuck waiting

As I already answered bitmap and core X11 fonts users : the wiki is
open for new guidelines, as long as they respect our general packaging
