gentoo devs have just realised sharefonts is incorrectly labelled public
domain in thier package manager and is being installed without the user
being aware of the licence. They intend removing it.
One package that seems to use it is gimp.
on http://www.gimp.org/docs/userfaq.html it says
> The base script-fu package makes extensive use of the
> freefont package, and at least one font (AlfredDrake)
> from the sharefont package.
This seems pretty marginal usage. Can anyone advise if removing sharefonts
will break fu or any other parts of gimp?
