I can't understand this fully: this font is distributed under GPL 2 or
later, so what's the point in redistributing it?

Anyway, I agree with you about merging glyphs from other branches of
the font.

Douch, I didn't know about this... :-(

So, I'll wait. Let me know, I'll be happy to give my modest
contribution, if I can!

Kind regards, Giovanni.
