Is the information given by Dave Crossland on above issue resolves the
problem?. I think it is fair to use Fontforge Authors in case file is
missing copyright information as told by Dave in the issue.
Also I feel we can strip off some folders like gtkui, Packaging,
debian-old. We can also strip of osx and folders under contrib but this
might need some additional work to patch up autotools scripts.
Folders like travis-scripts is not needed for packaging. Also I think we
won't be able to use tests/ folder.
Please let me know what do you think?.
