Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2013-09-02 12:25:57 UTC
Very interesting:

> -Do not pass the font files without this textfile!

The included font is v1.2 (2008), which was published with the same restrictions file, which is missing in SFML.

Comment 3 mejiko 2013-10-15 05:01:14 UTC
I best suggests that replace non-free font to free font. (but not tested)

E.g GNU Freefont, libration font, etc...

If removing this font, There code is not work. (I think)
