I'm a member of the Fedora Project, a community project that produces a complete open-source operating system and platform, and I came across your font _________. It would be great if we could get this font into Fedora, the Linux distribution we produce. We try to carry as many fonts as possible in Fedora, so our users have a wide variety from which to choose.
Our guidelines are very strict about checking the sources of fonts. This allows us to keep Fedora fonts freely distributable by anyone, anywhere in the world. We have millions of users, and any user of Fedora is free to redistribute the contents of Fedora at any time.
Before I package your font for inclusion in Fedora, can I ask you a couple questions about the source? Your answers will help me proceed efficiently, so I appreciate your help.
- The upstream license for this font is listed as ____. Could you confirm this for me so I can note it for a future Fedora licensing audit?
- Is this font derived from any other work? If so, can you tell me where I can find that work?
- It would be very helpful if the license text was provided as part of the archive file. I found an authoritative copy of the license text at (((URL))). Could I ask you to roll it into the archive?
- (((FOLLOWUP ONLY))) The license for your font is ____, and it is derived from a work licensed under ____. However, this type of licensing normally requires a written permission from the original work's author. Can you send me a copy of that permission so I can note it for a future Fedora licensing audit?

Thank you very much for your time and consideration!
