As usual with GPL fonts:

# Etiam gravida lobortis ligula.
# upstream needs to be contacted to check the GPL versions it accepts

# Proin ultricies sapien vitae eros.
# licensing needs to be checked for the FSF GPL font exception, and if it's not present, upstream asked to add it

# Aliquam dignissim luctus risus.
# upstream needs to be asked if there's a separate canonical source for the fonts we should use to honor the GPL

◆ Requester and packager: list there the elements you know of that will impact packaging activity, such as licensing that needs clarifying, an upstream that uses a specific non-english language to communicate, broken or incomplete build scripts, etc.
 
◆ Packager: take care of those items and remove them from the page once they've been dealt with.
