I suppose this is the kind of contribution the project would welcome.

Most font projects are one-man/one-organisation creations. So they don't need
any written standard, the designer mostly agrees with himself. DejaVu is a
rather unusual example of large community-created font and the associated
gouvernance is invented as needs are identified. Also as any FLOSS project
progress is incremental and little problems are fixed when reported.

While we are lucky to have one of the main designers replying in this ticket,
this is really something better discussed on the DejaVu mailing list (that
various experts follow).
