Tags: patch


Indeed, according to upstream webpage [1] the font is released under a 
Open Font License. I wasn't able, though to find the License itself - or
any mention of it - in the upstream tarball.
I also tried my luck with the Debian package repository, but beside the
copyright file, there is no indication of upstream choice of license.

As among the conditions of SIL Open Font License is to ship the license
itself with the font, I think this is a bug that should be (reported
and) fixed upstream.

In any case, I'm adding a patch for the debian/copyright file, in order
to fix at least the wrong license problem.
