Good morning.

Of course I'm glad there are more and more free fonts in the ConTeXt. 
The project you spead about sounds great. But may I ask you for a favor? 
Would it be possible to add one more zip file to the downloading page of zip file including all free fonts in 
the versions that are currently supported by the ConTeXt? I do not 
update my system very often, and that's why I often get into problems 
like this when I try to update ConTeXt. If it didn't spend a great deal 
of your time, it would help me (and perhaps more people) a lot. Thank 
you very much.

Yours thankful
