Yes, generally referred to as an oblique version.

The conversion doesn't appear to have been done very well at all, and I'd
discard it in favour of the original TTF.

As the comments suggest (and FontForge shows), the "c" has conflicting
widths in two of the font's tables.

If you look at some sample text in Fontmatrix, it is clear that the left
sidebearings of "A", "J", "S" and "Y" have been changed (flip between the
TTF and OTF and you'll see some wobbling!)

It doesn't even express Mårten's wish for the font to be free, as the
conversion changes it from being an installable font without restrictions,
to being "printable document, no subsetting".
