Any updates on this issue?
We did not receive any responses from the original glyph creator, and cannot get
enough information to clear the background check of the font. What information
are required before the inclusion in the Fedora Core again:
For clearing the legal background of the fonts, could you help us
getting an ownership statement, mainly stating:
- From the designers of all glyphs within the font and ownership of them
- the origin of the glyph design or what fonts/glyphs is it inspired from.
- the owner(s) have granted the license of GPL.
Just to clarify, the ownership statements need to be written by the original
owners (scanned document is great, but email is fine as well). Thanks.
No response from reporter since 4 months so closing this bug now.
