Our current noto package isn't any different than the ones offered on
their website: It is versioned (probably from github or a news announcement),
but the file is not really versioned, and our downloaded file into the store
is not versioned aswell.

Now we have two options: Switch to their github repositories for the downloads,
where they are versioned, or use all the individual files from the noto website:

- https://www.google.com/get/noto/
Noto fonts except for CJK and emoji: https://github.com/googlei18n/noto-fonts
Noto CJK fonts: https://github.com/googlei18n/noto-cjk
Noto Emoji fonts and the toolchain to generate Noto Emoji fonts: 
https://github.com/googlei18n/noto-emoji

I'm in favor of just using the unversioned fonts from the
google website because they are a) upstream b) bigger than
github (I'm positive that they have their fallback options)
and c) the files are reasonable grouped in archives.
