TODO: Descriptions on Reserved Font Names and common serious bugs

RFN violation

To:      Debian Bug Tracking System <submit@bugs.debian.org>
Subject: <package>: Reserved Font Names violation

Package:
Version:
Severity: serious
User: debian-fonts@lists.debian.org
Usertags: rfn-violation license-violation
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-fonts@lists.debian.org

Your package contains a OFL font:

<package>: <filename in Debian here>
<url to the pkg-fonts review pages here>

This looks to be from here:

<upstream URLs here>

The fonts seems to be modified, or has been rebuilt in a way that is
not bitwise identical to the upstream build, and your font name
includes Reserved Font Names (RFN) stated in the license.

According to OFL-FAQ 5.9:
> Yes, all rebuilds which change the font data and the smart code are
> Modified Versions and the requirements of the OFL apply
https://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=OFL-FAQ_web

Any of these actions is required:
  * Rebuild identical to the upstream build using packages in main.
  * Work with upstream to resolve the license issue by having an rebuild
    exception or remove RFN from the license.

Any of these actions can also resolve this issue, but not recommended:
  * Build the font from source using tools from Debian main during the package build but distribute the upstream build in the binary package instead. In this case it is not required to move the font to contrib.
  * Change the font name to avoid RFN being used as the primary name. This makes the font incompatible with the upstream font.
  * If the font cannot be built from source using only packages in Debian main, move this package to contrib and use the upstream build.

Missing RFNs in debian/copyright

To:      Debian Bug Tracking System <submit@bugs.debian.org>
Subject: <package>: missing font Reserved Font Names notice

Package:
Version:
Severity: serious
User: debian-fonts@lists.debian.org
Usertags: rfn-violation license-violation
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-fonts@lists.debian.org

Your package contains a OFL font:

<package>: <filename in Debian here>
<url to the pkg-fonts review pages here>

This looks to be from here:

<upstream URLs here>

Your package does not contain the Reserved Font Names (RFN) notice in the
debian/copyright file, as it was published in the upstream font, therefore
your distribution of the font constitutes a violation of the license.

Please update the debian/copyright file in your package to reproduce
the RFN notice from the upstream font.
