I will make the license available at:
I accept that the licernse is non-free. But I can't see why it is
non-free enough to prevent it being in section non-us/non-free. Any
input on this is happily looked at.

I make no value judgements on companies wanting to join the free
software movement and whther the licenses they come up with to
facilitate this are good or bad. *This* license does not meet the
DFSG, therefore *this* package must go in non-free due (at the very
least) to the resrictions of use of the fonts. I also believe that it
is non-us because of clause 6 of the license. I am not as fanatical as
RMS for example about the ideals of free software, I think he takes it
to excessive extremes sometimes.
Is the upshot of your mail saying that it should be in non-free? (which
I had already accepted and pointed out) Or is it saying that it is not
packageable? (which I can't see any reason for I have to admit)
a little confused and just looking for clarification
