+# Roboto V2 Sources
+This directory contains the current masters used to generate the Roboto Sans and
+Roboto Condensed families.
+
+### Updating Sources
+When replacing the source VFBs, the source UFOs should be synced using FontLab's
+vfb2ufo converter: http://blog.fontlab.com/font-utility/vfb2ufo/
+
+Windows and Mac OS downloads are provided. The Windows download runs on Linux
+via wine:
+
+```
+wine [path-to-vfb2ufo]/exe/vfb2ufo.exe [roboto]/src/v2/Roboto_Thin.vfb
+wine [path-to-vfb2ufo]/exe/vfb2ufo.exe [roboto]/src/v2/Roboto_Regular.vfb
+wine [path-to-vfb2ufo]/exe/vfb2ufo.exe [roboto]/src/v2/Roboto_Bold.vfb
+```
+
+The converter should work both ways, so it is possible to convert altered UFOs
+back into VFBs which can be opened in FontLab.
