Bug description:
  Can you please provide a "Styleguide" for the ubuntu font family?
  I tried to add a character on my own, matching the style of the rest of the ubuntu font, discovering that I would need a bit more "artistic guidance". Tried to copy the style from the given characters, but haven't been 100% certain when a line should be straight or curved for example. It would be nice to have the "rules" documented that if people start adding characters for other languages from scatch they have something to rely on.
