On a personal note, I would not like to see them hosted at Fedora
Infrastructure or included as part of anything related to bn_IN (which
is maintained by Runa) till there is clarity on the issue.
I'd echo the same.
As stated by Sayamindu in another mail in this same
thread, the people involved have a history of plagiarism (ever since the
time when bn was a single locale) and I would seriously discourage these
fonts to be associated with bn_IN. The conversations in Bengali, linked
in the fedorahosted ticket translate into a tirade of allegations
against the "donor" of the fonts.
