Description Nicolas Mailhot 2010-02-22 10:39:16 EST
This font claims to be under the GPL, and incorporate Vera/Dejavu elements

Unfortunately the Vera License is not GPL-compatible. DejaVu additions are mostly in the public domain but separating them from the Vera core is not obvious and anyway what third-party fonts are interested in is usually the basic latin Vera core.

Therefore, unless upstream agrees to relicense the whole font under the Vera License, (assuming all the other parts in the font can be relicensed by upstream and are not derived from third-party GPL fonts) or drops Vera components from the font, we can not ship the result
