Hello Bastian;

I am the person would would address any problems in the Adobe 'autohint'
program. However, I'm not sure what issue you are referencing. I have on
file a request from Daniel Kahn Gillmor <dkg at fifthhorseman.net> to make
the MM subsrs OpenSource, so that FontForge can build MM fonts. I do plan
to make the AFDKO OpenSource, and would include the MM subrs, as well as
the autohint code. This is currently scheduled for late 2013, but could
easily slip for another 6 months.

Bets regards,
