Severity: serious Package: xfonts-75dpi Note, while this is filed against xfonts-75dpi, it affects several of the font packages generated from the xfree86 source package, feel free to reassign to another package. The two large groups in question are the Utopia (UT*) and the Lucida (lu*) fonts. The only license I can find on the Utopia fonts is in the font files themselves: COPYRIGHT "Copyright (c) 1989, 1991 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved." Obviously without something further we do not even have a license to distribute them, hopefully I am simply missing a license somewhere that gives us proper rights, however.. The license case for the Lucida fonts is a little more interesting. In the font files is the following notice: COMMENT (c) Copyright Bigelow & Holmes 1986, 1985. Lucida is a registered COMMENT trademark of Bigelow & Holmes. See LEGAL NOTICE file for terms COMMENT of the license. The contents of the file in question is below, what rights it gives is, a very interesting question. It does not explicitly give permission to modify, however it is vague enough that -legal should probably examine it. (Note, this is a /different/ license then the one Branden recently sent B&H a letter about.)

I now present a script I just wrote that writes random bits of, well random bits, into random places in your favorite partition or file. For best (meaning most spectacular) results, use while the database or filesystem is in active use. Disclaimer: This code is untested, and it may or may not trash your filesystem and/or database.
