I hope it will be releasing under GPL, is it?
or any other special license?
Can you make sure this will be under GPL so that 
we can avoid a duplication work.
Because we are planning to make an OTF font by using GPLed
TTF font by N.V.Shaji (created by using GPLed Malayalam TeX
Package by Jeroen Hellingman)

You can see RMS's mail here says GPL works fine for fonts.

If you are not going to use GPL, please inform me.
