  [nc] Generate TeX files of the Ubuntu Font Family during build time

Status in Ubuntu Font Family:
Status in ubuntu-font-family-sources package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  At the moment it is not possible to use the Ubuntu Font Family in
  LaTeX  without importing it manually. It would be great if this font
  would be made available in LaTeX by default, so you can choose to use
  a modern font without too much of a hassle.

  Vincent-Xavier Jumel posted an article on his blog with some
  instructions for converting the font for use with TeX at <http://blog

  I'm requesting to generate these files at build time. We could then
  make LaTeX recommend the resulting package, so every user on Ubuntu
  who installs LaTeX will be able to use the font straight away.
