Hi,considering http://www.freetype.org/patents.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Term_of_patent_in_the_United_States (found through http://lwn.net/Articles/317674/) it seems that Apple's patents on the bytecode interpreter are going to expire sometime in October this year. So, I have two questions:
1) for fedora-legal: is it so?2) for fedora-fonts: do we care? I had some problems to display Inconsolata, and after emailing with its upstream author, we came to the conclusion that missing bytecode interpreter and non-interpretation of hints could be in fault here. I have installed freefont-freeworld package and Inconsolata seems to be better now. Do we interpret hints in TrueType fonts at all? If not, and we are only auto-hinting, wouldn't freefont-freeworld (possibly with patches on cairo, pango, and related KDE libraries) made Fedora fonts looking better?
