Hi all,

I subscribed the Launchpad fonts team to some bug reports.
These fonts are packaged in Debian.

Some fonts break copyrights by borrowing glyphs from non-free fonts.
Others break licenses of free fonts by not respecting the terms.
These fonts should not be distributed unless the license are respected.

There's also some fonts that specifiy the wrong encoding. These should
not be Unicode fonts.
