This page attempts to list fonts that are missing from Debian (including nice non-free ones).
This section lists fonts that are under a free licence or look like they are DFSG-free.

This section lists candidates for the non-free section of the archive. Do not add fonts that you know we cannot distribute.
Siddhanta by Mihail Bayaryn, covering Vedic extensions; the font is using the CC-by-NC-ND 3.0 license, but the author has previously made fonts available with GPL; as other projects (Fedora, SIL) are working on extending their Devanagari fonts the need for this non-free font may be outwaited
