[Pkg-fonts-devel] New licensing of fontforge

Hi all,

I'm trying to package newer version of fontforge and I see this in
LICENSE file first para.

> FontForge is available as a whole under the terms of the [GNU
> GPL](http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html), version 3 or any later
> version.  However, almost all of its parts are available under the
> "revised BSD license"
> ([pdf](http://www.law.yi.org/~sfllaw/talks/bsd.pdf)) because FontForge

In my opinion the Licensing should dual licensed under GPL-v3 and
Revised BSD. Do you guys see it other way?..

As per Dave Crossland on this comment ¹ He explicitly says Debian has to
redistribute it under GPL-v3. So I would be happy to get teams opinion

Best Regards
