    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-112?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13157477#comment-13157477

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on LEGAL-112:

I'm unsure whether I understand

"5) The Font Software, modified or unmodified, in part or in whole,
must be distributed entirely under this license, and must not be
distributed under any other license. The requirement for fonts to
remain under this license does not apply to any document created
using the Font Software."

> The OFL http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=OFL_web is an open source
license especially for fonts. Popular font editors such as fontforge suggest this license
by making this license choice available as a one-click button action.
> Having the OFL categorized is important for projects that would benefit by bundling some
high quality fonts that are not usually available on a system. This could not only benefit
projects targeting end users but may also become interesting for servers as all recent releases
of major browsers support the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Open_Font_Format
