calligra.mf states that:

%% Changes made by S. Dachian ( Serguei.Dachian at univ-lemans.fr ) at 05/99
%% to correct a bug in "W" letter, preventing the font from being correctly
%% compiled by METAFONT.  Also a hyphenation character added to the font.
%% Original author of the font is unknown.

I'd assumed this meant those listed as the current maintainers didn't
know the origin of the font...

Which makes this rather odd...
