Dear people,

I'm sorry that I couldn't read the past mails.  I was busy at this
Friday and Thursday.  

I have no time to read the other mails but just skimming them,
so I'll reply with merely reading this mail.

o C-DAC's various Indian fonts are copyrighted.  

o When I asked them about the use of their fonts for Emacs, they've
  given me the permisson in 1999.

o But it was a long time ago, so we should ask again for it for
  assurance.  Dr. Anupam, who worked for CDAC at that time and gave me

o I realize that their fonts are not really free fonts, but since they

o I thought that the copyright issue of the program code for
  char->glyph conversion and the copyright of font can be separated.

Yours sincerely,
