Hello,

One year ago, Roel Janssen sent a patch adding this font but finally it
wasn't applied. I created a new one, building the fonts from source, and
it includes all fira mono family: Bold, Medium and Regular.

I'm downloading the sources from carrois.com website because from github
isn't possible to download only the Fira Mono font, Fira Sans is also
included. I checked the nix package and they are doing the same. 

Cheers,

Toni

This patch doesn’t build the fonts from source, which would be nice
(with Fontforge or similar), but it’s great anyway.

I made the description a full sentence and applied it.

Thanks!
