Hi Thomas,
thank you very much for the link.  Georgia is one of the beautiful
fonts created by Matthew Carter which display well on paper and also
on screen.

TeX Live only supports packages which are on CTAN.  It would be nice
if you upload the fonts to CTAN:


It's probably not useful to upload the variable fonts and webfonts
(*.woff2) to CTAN as well because TeX can't do anything with them.
