Subject: profont license

profont license

Hi Tobias,

I'm a developer on the Rockbox <> project and
recently imported ProFont into our distribution. It's been brought to
my attention that the ProFont license explicitly says that
redistribution is only allowed as an unmodified distribution, but in
order to use ProFont in Rockbox, we needed to convert it to the .bdf

I was wondering if we could use a modified license to distribute this
version, or if we can simply have your blessing to distribute the fonts
in .bdf format rather than the existing .pcf format distribution.

I had gotten the impression from your site that your intent is to have
ProFont reach as wide of an audience as possible, as long as credit is
given where it is deserved. In light of that, we have included a copy
of your original license in our distribution along with the .bdf format

I hope that this is an acceptable use of your excellent work, please let
me know if it is not and we'll drop the converted fonts and simply link
ot them with instructions for conversion to .bdf.

Thanks much,

Brandon Low
