I would assume you could consider the GPL.  There is no source code as you
mentioned...but I believe GPL would still be appropriate.  Just make sure
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.
