Unfortunately it seems that the versions of the TrueType fonts which are currently included in the add-on may not be redistributed anymore (cf. http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/), so they have to be removed completely from the repository.

Since subversion is still missing an "obliterate" command, this is somewhat messy (svnadmin dump --> svndumpfilter --> svnadmin load, cf. http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#removal) ...

I'd suggest to include both a short README.TXT file in the fonts subdirectory (draft attached) and a small note on the add-on page.

Update: The archives attached to the add-on topic have been corrected, old versions have been removed, and the README file has been committed.

Update: Aside from the corefonts site mentioned above, Wikipeda also has details about the license change, cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_fonts_for_the_Web
