We discussed possibility of bundling droid fonts into blender installer 
and release archived yesterday. Problem that droid fonts are under 
Apache2.0 license which is compatible with GPLv3, and not compatible 
with GPLv2. So looks like using this fonts would make final archive 
GPLv3. It's not really so big issue, but all sources should be licensed 
by GPLv2+ license. I've made some quick check and found this list of 
files which i'm not sure are under GPLv2+ compatible license:

- source/blender/blenkernel/intern/CCGSubSurf.c
- source/blender/blenkernel/intern/sound.c
- source/blender/editors/uvedit/uvedit_parametrizer.c
- source/blender/editors/sculpt_paint/paint_utils.c
- source/gameengine/GamePlayer/xembed/npunix.c

Would be nice to have respond from authors of this files if they're fine 
with GPLv2+ license.

P.S. It was really quick check so probably some more files should be 
verified, i'll make deeper check soon.

With best regards, Sergey I. Sharybin
