The font's source code appears to be here:


Your source package does not contain the font source code, therefore
your distribution of the font constitutes a violation of the license.

Please notify your upstream that they are violating the font license.

Please remove the font from the the source package and build-depend on
the fonts-liberation font package instead.

Please contact your upstream and ask them to use fontconfig or similar
to get fonts for use by the software instead of using a specific font.
