What is the license of this font ? Am I free to use it and propose it outside PGDP, for example at wikisource ? I sure hope it's free but I just want to be sure :)

From big_bill: When I created DPCustomMono from the freely available Bitstream Vera Mono(?) font, as well as changing glyphs etc I attempted to obey the license conditions by renaming the font, etc. As far as I know, it's free to use according to the conditions of the license.
