> Hey there.
> I'm currently reviewing a child theme that includes fonts licensed under
> the SIL Open Font License 1.1. Looking over the GNU website, I can see that
> this license isn't 100% GPL-compatible:
> http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/license-list.html#GPLCompatibleLicenses
> The parent theme has the same fonts as the child and is in the WP.org
> repository already.
> The GNU site does state the following, which, along with the parent theme
> already being accepted, made me second guess whether this license was
> allowed: "Neither we nor SIL recommend the use of this license for anything
> other than fonts."
> Is this a case where something slipped through or do we allow themes that
> have this license for fonts only?
> Thanks in advance for helping to clear this up!
