      from the Bitstream Vera fonts, their competitors should not be able to 
      do so either. You can sell the fonts as part of any software package, 
      however. 
 
   2. I want to package these fonts separately for distribution and 
      sale as part of a larger software package or system.  Can I do so? 
 
      Yes. A RPM or Debian package is a "larger software package" to begin  
      with, and you aren't selling them independently by themselves.  
      See 1. above. 
 
   3. Are derivative works allowed? 
      Yes! 
 
   4. Can I change or add to the font(s)? 
      Yes, but you must change the name(s) of the font(s). 
 
   5. Under what terms are derivative works allowed? 
 
      You must change the name(s) of the fonts. This is to ensure the 
      quality of the fonts, both to protect Bitstream and Gnome. We want to 
      ensure that if an application has opened a font specifically of these 
      names, it gets what it expects (though of course, using fontconfig, 
      substitutions could still could have occurred during font 
      opening). You must include the Bitstream copyright. Additional 
      copyrights can be added, as per copyright law. Happy Font Hacking! 
 
   6. If I have improvements for Bitstream Vera, is it possible they might 
get  
       adopted in future versions? 
 
      Yes. The contract between the Gnome Foundation and Bitstream has 
      provisions for working with Bitstream to ensure quality additions to 
      the Bitstream Vera font family. Please contact us if you have such 
      additions. Note, that in general, we will want such additions for the 
      entire family, not just a single font, and that you'll have to keep 
      both Gnome and Jim Lyles, Vera's designer, happy! To make sense to add 
      glyphs to the font, they must be stylistically in keeping with Vera's 
      design. Vera cannot become a "ransom note" font. Jim Lyles will be 
      providing a document describing the design elements used in Vera, as a 
      guide and aid for people interested in contributing to Vera. 
 
   7. I want to sell a software package that uses these fonts: Can I do so? 
 
      Sure. Bundle the fonts with your software and sell your software 
      with the fonts. That is the intent of the copyright. 
 
   8. If applications have built the names "Bitstream Vera" into them,  
      can I override this somehow to use fonts of my choosing? 
 
      This depends on exact details of the software. Most open source 
      systems and software (e.g., Gnome, KDE, etc.) are now converting to 
      use fontconfig (see www.fontconfig.org) to handle font configuration, 
      selection and substitution; it has provisions for overriding font 
      names and subsituting alternatives. An example is provided by the 
      supplied local.conf file, which chooses the family Bitstream Vera for 
      "sans", "serif" and "monospace".  Other software (e.g., the XFree86
