Hi all,

Some of you may have noticed I'm working on a tool called
check-all-the-things that does what it says on the tin.


One of the things it has checks for is fonts.
So far it runs fontlint, ftvalid and ftlint.
If anyone has suggestions for more, I'd be glad to hear them.


One thing I would like to check is embedding restriction bits in fonts
in Debian main. I have written a script for this but there are two
issues that need to be fixed before I can enable it:

The first is that using python-fontforge prints fontlint warnings when
opening fonts. Anyone know of any fontforge API to disable these?

I need some guidance in writing a clearer explanation, now I have this:

These fonts in Debian main have embedding restrictions,
but embedding restrictions are not DFSG compatible.
