I'm actually in the middle of updating the license for Sniglet right =20
now. It is licensed under OFL, so you can include it in Fedora Linux. =20
Dafont doesn't allow for custom licensing, which is why is says =20
personal use right now (there's a drop down menu with like 4 choices), =20
so I'm waiting for them up update the font file which includes meta =20
data but they're super slow.

Thanks for the email and good luck with your project.
