Bug#918995: ITP: fonts-quicksand -- free sans-serif font with round attributes

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Jonathan Carter <jcc@debian.org>

* Package name    : fonts-quicksand
  Version         : 0.2016
  Upstream Author : Andrew Paglinawan, Thomas Jockin
* URL             : https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Quicksand
* License         : OFL
  Programming Lang: font
  Description     : free sans-serif font with round attributes

Quicksand is a display sans serif with rounded terminals.
The project was initiated by Andrew Paglinawan in 2008
using geometric shapes as a core foundation. It is designed
for display purposes but kept legible enough to use in small
sizes as well.

In 2016, in collaboration with Andrew, it was thoroughly revised
by Thomas Jockin to improve the quality.

This font is used by the chosen artwork proposal for Debian 10
(buster). I indend to package this so that SVG files that uses
this font can be rendered properly.
