Not all of those fonts were actually released by Google, most of them are 
just copied from somewhere else (which the Free Font licenses being used 
allow, of course). The Droid fonts were designed by Ascender Corp. under 
contract from Google, but as far as I know, most or all of the remaining 
ones don't originally come from Google.

Several of those fonts are already packaged in Fedora: I recognized at least 
the Droid fonts, Inconsolata, Vollkorn and Yanone Kaffeesatz. It would be 
nice and useful to have the remaining ones packaged as well.
