Re: circos packaging

hi Charles,
I am dealing with upstream fonts author and upstream author to try to
fix this.
For pointers font, author should be ok to relicense.
For shapes and circles, I don't think so.

So either upstream author can use other fonts, or I should package those
independently in non-free and put them in Suggests,
as those fonts are not mandatory for the software. Fonts are
configurable, and "basic" usage does not require at all those fonts.

I will let you know

For modern computer, I am currently packaging it with the Font team support.
