Thanks for your contribution, Vladimir. In order for other people to
use it, it needs to have a license associated with it. That's the
problem we had with the old fonts that we just replaced, there was no
license and the copyright holder asked us to stop distributing it.
Could you choose a license and place it in the zip folder with the
Easiest licenses to use are probably the BSD  or MIT  licenses.
LibreCAD is GPL-2 , with some of the code licensed GPL-2+ (allowing
for later versions of GPL). You could license the font GPL-2+. To do
that, place the file from  and follow the instructions for "How to
Apply These Terms to Your New Programs" at the bottom of .
Since it is an art/font file which is merely called and opened from
inside LibreCAD, I believe you can also license your font CC-BY or
CC-BY-SA . If you'd like a quick explanation to the differences
between them all, just ask.

If you go the CC way (which in my humble opinion is the best for a font),
please use at least version 3.0 of the licenses Scott mentioned. Older
versions are not considered free by some distros.
