I didn't say you were, it's just known GUST people tend to react badly
to anything that smells like GPL-ism :(

The Gyre fonts should be license-clean now (they got URW to relicense
the original URW donation under their preferred license last year, and
dropped the bits that were contributed under the GPL to the ghostscript

See for example the first block of :

For other GUST fonts, not part of the Gyre collection, you can ask me or
spot. IIRC they are not all released under the same licence and some of
them are OK, others not.

Please package the OTF versions and do one package per font in TEX Gyre
(not one huge TEX Gyre srpm).
