  Description     : largely geometric, friendly and open curves font

 Roboto has a dual nature. It has a mechanical skeleton and the forms are
 largely geometric. At the same time, the font features friendly and open
 curves. While some grotesks distort their letterforms to force a rigid rhythm,
 Roboto doesn’t compromise, allowing letters to be settled into their natural
 width. This makes for a more natural reading rhythm more commonly found in
 humanist and serif types.
 This is the normal family, which can be used alongside the Roboto Condensed
 family and the Roboto Slab family.
 This package also provides Css, Scss and LESS files to use webfonts from this

This package will be used by the next version of OpenStack Dashboard, aka
Horizon, through a python-xstatic-roboto-fontface package.
