[Pkg-fonts-devel] New licensing of fontforge

I agree with Jonas and have to admit that I don't really understand the
original question. In Debian, we document the license of the source
code *per file* in debian/copyright. Furthermore, it is pretty clearly
documented in this file's policy what to do if more than one license
applies to a given source file:


The license of "fontforge", i.e. the end-product, is a result of the
licenses of the individual source files and the way they are linked
together. This "effective" license for the whole product is, and here I
am repeating what Jonas already stated, not necessarily documented in
the debian/copyright file itself.
