Re: Review needed: Gentium font re-released under the SIL Open Font License
The Gentium font (http://scripts.sil.org/gentium) has been re-released
under the SIL Open Font License (http://scripts.sil.org/OFL).
This is excellent news as there are few free/open-source fonts that
cover the Latin, Cyrillic and Greek Unicode blocks, and special
I would like to update the ttf-gentium page, at
so that the font is no longer under "non-free".
Is the SIL Open Font License (final version) free?
Hi Simos and Martin-Eric,
I've now built a new .deb for Gentium 1.02 with improved maintainer
scripts and all the right elements needed for an OFL release, it also
includes the Fontlab sources.
You can get it from http://scripts.sil.org/Gentium_download
Your feedback is very welcome.
As soon as we get the official position of the FSF published (rms and
other key members of the community including Jim Gettys from GNOME
already told us OFL 1.0 was free), and - of course - the agreement of
Debian, we can upload into main.
Eben Moglen and others from the Software Freedom Law Center are also
looking into it.
