|Change license for Noto fonts|
|With the new release we have moved from Apache 2.0 to Open Font License 1.1 (OFL 1.1). We|
|are making this change because it makes it easier for you, the end users of Noto, to use|
|the fonts that we produce. When we first released the Noto fonts the OFL license was|
|still a bit of an unknown entity and the Apache license looked familiar to us. Over the|
|years the OFL license has become the most commonly used and understood license to use for|
|open source fonts.|
|All of our fonts going forward from this release will be available only under the OFL|
|license. If you still want the fonts under the Apache license you can get them from the|
|repo using the tag '2015-09-29-license-apache'. However, new fonts and updates to|
|existing fonts will only use the OFL license.|
