Default RFC: Adding ParaType Free Font License to tree

Hi,
We had Paratype fonts in tree for some time (media-fonts/paratype)
with OFL license. Recently they added bold font variant to PTMono font
with their own license [1], but OFL font tarball was left unchanged.
We tried to reach upstream with this question, but as for now no
answer was got.
So the question is: can Paratype FreeFont license be added to tree as
/usr/portage/licenses/paratype?

I don't see any reason why it couldn't.

It looks like a simplified version of the OFL license, so it could
even be included in @MISC-FREE in profiles/license_groups.

So, just to clairfy. I create file 'paratype' in gentoo-x86/licenses,
paste there text of license and then commit? and who adds it to
license_groups?

Right. If it exists, you should preferably take the license or copying
file from the package's tarball. (Make sure that it's utf-8 encoded.)

> and who adds it to license_groups?

Please wait for a another few days if anybody will raise objections,
then you can add it yourself.

Well, they updated their OFL version of fonts, so license is not
needed now Anyway, thanks for help.
