This font claims to be under the GPL, and incorporate Vera/Dejavu elements

Unfortunately the Vera License is not GPL-compatible. DejaVu additions are
mostly in the public domain but separating them from the Vera core is not
obvious and anyway what third-party fonts are interested in is usually the
basic latin Vera core.

Therefore, unless upstream agrees to relicense the whole font under the Vera
License, (assuming all the other parts in the font can be relicensed by
upstream and are not derived from third-party GPL fonts) or drops Vera
components from the font, we can not ship the result
