Hello, Iwan, and other list members,
Khaled (author of Thabit) replied, that the latin characters stem from IBM Courier, so it's perfectly legal! I tried to fix the issues mentioned before . http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/font/ibm-type1/tree/
 http://f.qubodup.net/trigger/consolefont-ibmcourier.pngLet me know whether I should commit the IBM Courier-based console font.

Wow, it must have been a lot of work to come up with all those variations!
I reviewed them quickly, the TLDR version, I like Thabit by a long way
and if the countdown comment could be cleaned up then I would vote for
this one to replace the current font.
Thanks a lot for reviewing all these! Note: I can easily remove the dots inside of zeros. I find them disturbing as well. Let me know if you would like me to try that for a font.
I took a look at Thabit's license file  and it mentions that IBM owns the latin characters. I emailed the author, asking for the name of the IBM font, to make sure it's license is OK. http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/f/fonts-hosny-thabit/fonts-hosny-thabit_0.02-1/fonts-hosny-thabit.copyrightWhile re-reading about Courier, I noticed that Nimbus Mono L is supposed to be a freely licensed drop-in replacement for the font, so I tried a version with it .I noticed that the current font used by Trigger Rally seems to be identical, so I think we've been using a freely licensed one all along but just forgot that fact :) I will update the license file.Please check whether you prefer the current Nimbus Mono L or the version I linked above. I will get back at you regarding Thabit, should I receive a reply from the author.
