Package: hannah-data
Version: 0.2.d-1
Severity: serious
User: pkg-fonts-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: non-free
X-Debbugs-CC: pkg-fonts-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org

Your package contains a second non-free font:


This looks to be from here:


From the zip file:

Fat Free Solid -- Copyright 1999, Ray Dittmeier
A TrueType font available from Ace Fonts
at http://www.acefonts.com
Send e-mail to: fonts at acefonts.com.

This font is free for both personal and commercial use. No fees or
registration are required. All I ask is that if you use it, make 
occasional return visits to the acefonts.com web site.  If you have
a web site, setting up a link to Ace Fonts at the above URL would 
also be nice.

This font may be freely redistributed under the following conditions:

1. Send an e-mail to tell me about it.

2. This text file must stay with the .ttf file.

3. If you make it available at a Web archive, include a link to
   Ace Fonts at http://www.acefonts.com/.

4. If you include it in a collection distributed on CD, floppy disk, 
   or any other comparable medium, send me a copy of the CD or floppy 
   disk or whatever.

5. Keep in mind that nothing I write in this file means I'm giving up 
   the copyright for this font.

This licence does not clearly allow all the DFSG-required freedoms:


Please contact the font author and ask them to licence the font
under a DFSG-compliant font licence such as the OFL:


Since the upstream website seems long dead, please remove the font from
the binary package and the source package and depend on another font
package or move the package to non-free.

Please contact your upstream and ask them to use fontconfig or similar
to get fonts for use by the software instead of using a specific font.
