programs in a Postscript or PDF file that consists of a document that
contains text to be displayed or printed using this font, regardless
of the conditions or license applying to the document itself.

use AGPLv3 for the license?
On a mostly unrelated note, I clicked on the "Upstream URL" link for
"Affero General Public License 3.0 with Zarafa trademark exceptions"
on the licensing list, and got a 404.

have updated our "Bad License" list to include NPSL. No software
under that license may be included in Fedora (including EPEL and
The license includes restrictions on "proprietary software companies",
which is a field of endeavor restriction contrary to the Open Source
Definition. If future versions of the NPSL are released, they will
be re-evaluated for use in Fedora.
