It is called out in the releases, but many people may want to clone the last non-variable fonts:

⚠️ These .otf fonts CANNOT be installed on Windows or macOS systems because the OSes do not currently support the OpenType-CFF2 format. Install the latest non-variable fonts instead.

Do so by checking out the specific tag:

git checkout 2.030R-ro/1.050R-it -C "$FONT_HOME/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro"

This fixed Emacs, for example.
