Dear Christian,

Please allow me to reply to your email about the UKIJ fonts packaging issue.
Your proposition about the naming seems ok to me. One of the possible
English translations of the UKIJ -- Uyghur Kompytér Ilimi Jem'iyiti -- is :
Uyghur Computer Science Association. In order to share the fonts with as
larger group of people as possible, we made them available under both
licenses. I recommend you use the OFL if you think it is compatible enough
with your font license policy.

We will be happy to answer any question you may have.

Kind regards,

Waris A. Janbaz
Co-founders of the UKIJ
