Sorry, there must be some confusion, I am not the original author, I'm
just the maintainer of the Debian package.

As I'm not the author, my wishes are pretty irrelevant :)
What I wrote before about licencing was just my own opinion.

Mark Williamson <node.ue at gmail.com> is the author and he released it
into the public domain, I'm assuming that is the licencing he preferred
for that font (he released another font MPH Yangon under the GPL),
although I haven't really discussed licencing with him. I'd suggest
anyone wanting to clarify his wishes wrt licencing please contact him.

Apart from the licencing stuff, is anyone interested in being part of
the group to work on MPH 2B Damase?
