[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#489039: ttf-liberation: possibly undistributable

Justification: Policy 2.3
It seems to me that the distributability issues discussed in
are still present in the package, as uploaded to unstable.
"Exception" 1(b), as mentioned in debian/copyright is still present:
| (b) As a further exception, any distribution of the object code of the Software
| in a physical product must provide you the right to access and modify the
| source code for the Software and to reinstall that modified version of the
| Software in object code form on the same physical product on which you
| received it.
However, this is not a further permission with respect to the GNU GPL
v2: it's a further restriction.
This creates a self-contradictory license, as discussed on
the above cited debian-legal threads.
This package is possibly legally undistributable!
Please work with upstream to solve the issue.
