Subject Font related questions
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2011 14:18:13 GMT

In the process of removing the liberation fonts (they are under GPL 
license, issue 118600) I stumbled upon some font related questions. 
Maybe someone on this list can provide answers.

1. The gentium basic fonts are under the SIL Open Font License.  This 
looks OK to me but I am not a lawyer.  Is this a category A, B or X license?

2. The license of the open symbol font is unclear, it only has a 
copyright notice (to Oracle).  Issue 89686 complains about this.  There 
are comments about the intention of putting it under LGPL.  But the last 
comment of the issue is more than three years old and its status is 
STARTED.  Does anybody know more about this?

Additional information:

- External fonts are contained in archives in ext-sources:
   Gentium Basic Fonts:

   Liberation Fonts:

   They are processed in the more_fonts module.

- The Symbol Font can be found in extras/source/truetype/opens___.ttf
