I'd vote for removing this package from the repo as it is everything but valid. Afaik we cannot ship the ttf files due to their license.

I'm with Pierre here, this package isn't needed in the repos and we can make a better PKGBUILD if it's in the AUR, then the real installation process doesn't have to happen with the install script.

The license says we can only distribute the files in unmodified form. So I agree that the AUR is the place for this to be.

Sounds good to me, anyone who'd like take care of it should as I no longer maintain packages. I believe it was kept in exe format in order to conform to the license restrictions; they were extracted during the post-install process.

I'll kill this at some stage...

I could take care of it in the AUR. I uploaded it, hopefully no TU removes it ;) Would be nice if someone could take a look at it, I hope I made no mistakes.

I looked at it and looks good, but msfonts.txt is not necessary, rather. Now can list the contents of the package and use pkgfile etc. Thx.
