You have to submit the fonts for review through the fonts SIG - it's not
really a design-team managed thing.

I can tell you Jura's license looks fine, but Sansation's license is
going to need to be reviewed by Fedora legal. (see
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing#Good_Licenses_4 )

The font packaging process is really beautifully documented, take a look


Typically you create a new wiki page in the fonts wishlist category
describing the font -

Once it's packaged you move it to the packaged fonts category.
