How about "2. We Will Give Back to the Free Software Community"? The
packaging, at least, should be free. What about "4. Our Priorities are
Our Users and Free Software . . . We will place their interests first
in our priorities." How does a developer packaging shareware fonts
and adding an additional charge fit with either of those parts of
the social contract?
