looks like we have to either
publish muse under the GPL3 or use an
older feta font (from 2009).
using an older font is not a problem as long as the glyphs don't look
ugly (feta had major improvements in being rendered to small glyphs
(which is what we need), but i dunno if that was before or after 2009)
I'm not sure but I expect moving MusE to GPLv3 would also
require getting permission from everybody who might have gotten a patch
in. This may prove hard..
So I guess we either use the old font OR, since you already use
them as PNG, have some artist draw new images? Or were you planning on
using the font directly?
it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
(at your option) ANY LATER VERSION."
gotcha :) i understand this, as we could upgrade the license whenever
we want; we only may not downgrade
but i'm not a lawyer ;)
i don't plan to use the font directly; this may be done in a very late
version if wished, but i don't think so.
in general, my program only does three things with these pixmaps: draw
them at a certain position, find out their dimensions and maybe change
their color. everything which supports that can be used to render the
short answer: no
