Please follow the fonts package naming policy:

fonts-<foundry>-<fontname>

Here, I think it's worth using the foundry, so I'd propose
"fonts-adobe-sourcesanspro"


It would also be interesting to mention in the long description what
makes the font specific wrt the other gazillion of fonts we already
have in the archive.

This has to go to contrib since the source requires proprietary
software to be built.
