[NEW]fonts/mada

George Rosamond
pkg/DESCR:

Mada is a modernist, low-contrast Arabic typeface based largely on
the typeface seen in Cairo metro old signage which was designed by
Professor Fathi Gouda of Faculty of Applied Arts, Helwan University.

Mada is characterised by low descenders, open contours and low-
contrast forms making it suitable for small point sizes, user
interfaces, signage or low resolution settings.

Mada can work also as a display typeface giving modernist and
simplistic feeling.

Mada comes in 7 weights (ExtraLight, Light, Regular, Medium, SemiBold,
Bold and Black), as well as an interpolatable variable font that
can provide any intermediate weight on the fly.

Two small things.

One, DESCR is a little narrow. 80-ish columns would be better.

We prefer "/releases/download/" URLs if they exist, and one exists
for this port (Mada-1.3.zip on the releases page). The reason is that
"/archive/" tarballs are generated on the fly and do not have stable
checksums.

With those two small changes, this is ok with me.
