Yes, quite a lot of changes there. :(

I'll double check with upstream how it should work with F23 and what
version we should be using. I suspect there might be a follow up 0.0.18
release for GNOME 3.18.1 next week that fixes up a few things.

Most fonts are just zip files thrown over the wall and never updated
again. I think this is one of the few fonts that gets active
