#61 closed defect (FIXED)

Use local fonts instead of linking to remote ones

Description

Right now we're using Google's Web Fonts embed code:

`http://www.google.com/webfonts/family?family=Carter%20One#code <http://www.google.com/webfonts/family?family=Carter%20One#code>`_

This retrieves the font files from Google's servers. In the future
we should store the files locally.

I have downloaded this Lato Font from:
`http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/lato <http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/lato>`_
and in woff format. I put the font files within
mediagoblin/mediagoblin/static/fonts/

Hiya shawn,

Great! I think the proper thing here though would be to actually
put it in extlib/ then symlink it via ln -s to
mediagoblin/static/fonts/

I think details on the licensing should be checked into the extlib/
directory also. Copying willkg on here for comment.

I know you prefer sending patches but this particular one might be
more properly done via a git commit to a branch... I'm not sure
that a patch can do the symlinking right and etc. If you don't have
experience with that, now's a great time to learn! See the
resources on the wiki ;)
