Bug#482915: texlive-doc-en: No license info for some fontinst documentation
Here's one more bug taken over from tetex-doc. Since it's hidden in a
"nonfreeness collection" bugreport, and most of it has been resolved, I
create a new report, forwarding the small number of relevant mails.
Actually, back then we already had contacted the upstream author, and he
had asked what he needs to do to clear up the license, and received an
answer - but then we didn't follow up...

Subject: License of the fontinst documentation
Date: Thu, 23 Feb 2006 14:00:04 +0100
Dear fontinst maintenance team,
upon verifying the license information for various packages on CTAN and
in Debian's teTeX package, I found that the license information for
fontinst is incomplete.
Every source file contains a "LPPL version <whatever> or later"
statement, but the pure documentation files don't contain such a license
statement. I assume, as far as the TeX sources are included, they are
under the same license, LPPL?
But there's also files in the talks subdirectory for which no source is
currently available. Do you know about the license situation for them,
or should I try to contact Ulrik or Taco? And, for that matter, I guess
roadmap.eps has been created with MetaPost - do you happen to have the
Many thanks in advance, Frank
