Is the Ubuntu Font License ok to use for Fedora packages? If not,
the so licensed resources can be patched out.
No. It is non-free. It says:
To "Propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
computer or modifying a private copy.
The "except" items are use and modification restrictions. Since the
license only refers to "propogate", and never grants unrestricted use
or modification permissions, the license is non-free.
Canonical could fix this license by simply dropping "except executing
it on a computer or modifying a private copy".
