Re: foobillard package
It seems to me that the fonts included with foobilliard aren't _exactly_
non-free, but perhaps debian-legal should look over the license to make a
final decision on the DFSG-ness of the fonts; I might be wrong, but a
cursory glance over the README.FONTS file in foobilliard gives me the
feeling that these fonts may be OK, at least in this context.
The font license follows:
