You are being notified of this milestone because you requested that we contact you when the files were available for download. The fonts can be downloaded by clicking on this link (http://www.stixfonts.org/font_download.jsp) or by visiting the STIX Fonts Web site (www.stixfonts.org) and clicking on the "Download the STIX Fonts" button.
Here are the licence terms from the download page. It seems to be OK
for non-free. Clause 4 seems like it isn't a full modification clause,
Any thoughts on it?
The distribution also contains no copyright or licence information,
neither in the README nor in the copyright fields of the fonts
themselves, but this should be fixable by mailing the beta test
Note that it is quite likely that it is far far too late for STIX to
change the licence, so nitpicking it for problems unrelated uploading
STIX into Debian is a waste of bandwith, unless those nitpicks are
sent directly to the STIX Fonts Project Group.
