Subject Re: Bundling an AL Font

K. That quote applies to files being placed into svn. Is that what you are

I can't figure out where Google Open-Sans font source is located. Do they
have a NOTICE file? If they do, I'd use the applicable parts of the NOTICE.
If they don't have a NOTICE file, then, IMO, that means they aren't asking
for attribution and you don't need to do anything.

If it's not clear, then suggest you contact the Open-Sans project.

I would agree the how to covers it. Does the quote I included not apply to AL non text files?
