I would assume you could consider the GPL. There is no source code as you

to distribute the license. It is available at:

I can't speak for other distros but when the font is done you can post a bug
to wnpp titled RFP (Request for Package). If you need help with this...
feel free to email me personally. A developer (Or new maintainer) will then
look at the package and if they are interested in it they will package it.
