[Pkg-fonts-devel] ttf-ubuntu-font needs to be buildable with free tools to stay in main

Re: http://bugs.debian.org/603157

Thanks to everyone who is taking the issue of the freeness of font
packages seriously.

bremner's link about building with non-free tools should probably be the
thread rooted at:


Fonts are a crucial piece of debian's offering.

If the preferred form for modification of the font can only be built by
non-free tools, it's my understanding that the font would not be
acceptable in main; it would only be OK in contrib (or of course
non-free, if the license of the font itself does not meet the DFSG,
which is a separate issue).
