Comment: Several additional patches and other contributions, including the
ISO-10646-1 10x20 Neep font, were provided by Derek Upham. Derek Upham
has placed his modifications in the public domain.
Ben Wong contributed eight hand-drawn 10x20 runic letterforms.
The 6x13 letterforms corresponding to the 10x20 letterforms drawn by Ben
Wong are taken from GNU unifont, released under the following license:
All glyphs are released under the GNU General Public License (GPL)
version 2 or (at your option) a later version, with the GNU font
embedding exception. (Since the font embedding exception doesn't apply
to the rest of this package, it has been elided as allowed by the font
The glyphs for the ISO-10646-1 10x20 Neep font were taken from the
misc-fixed font maintained by Marcus Kuhn. Those glyphs have the
following copyright notice:
Public domain font. Share and enjoy.
Since these changes are all compatible with the base package license of
GPL v2 or later, it's easiest to think of the entire contents of the
package as covered by that license.

Comment: Changes by Joseph Carter did not have explicit copyright or
license statements. Presumbly those changes may be redistributed under
the same terms as the fonts in this package.
All changes and Debian packaging files by Russ Allbery are hereby placed

please consider this a license to treat these files in all respects as if

I have chosen to release them under the terms of the GNU General Public
License (GPL) version 2.0, or, at your option, any later version. This
means that you may freely modify and distribute these fonts, as long as
you distribute the source code for the fonts as well.
Some few parts of these fonts are derived from the 6x13 fixed font
accompanying the XFree86-3.3.2 distribution of the X Window System. That
font bears the notice "Public domain font; share and enjoy".
The vast majority of this set of fonts is original work. Besides the
derivations noted above, any resemblance to other fonts, copyrighted or
not, may be accounted for by standard letter shapes and the relatively
coarse resolution (75dpi) for which the fonts were created.
No warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including that of
merchantibility or fitness for a particular purpose. If anything breaks,
you get to keep both pieces. Your mileage may vary. Eat your
