Would anyone be okay with using this source? It seems
versioned and the only official source remaining
seems to be directly inside Googlefonts (guessing by
how many times the upstream location mention and links
to it). The newer versions of this font (Pro) are sold.

Well we can use github and pull just the single file,
which is okay.

fontlibrary.org could be a fallback if google in a
typical google move decides to ever shutdown the
fonts service (and with it the source for its fonts).
