I'm trying to package newer version of fontforge and I see this in
LICENSE file first para.
> FontForge is available as a whole under the terms of the [GNU

In my opinion the Licensing should dual licensed under GPL-v3 and
Revised BSD. Do you guys see it other way?..
As per Dave Crossland on this comment ¹ He explicitly says Debian has to
redistribute it under GPL-v3. So I would be happy to get teams opinion
