Somebody pointed me in an IRC channel about this font not being free.

Hi Omar,

I am one of the admins at the Open Font Library, where it seems you have
uploaded a couple of fonts, OPN Malatashito and OPN Stun Filla Wenkay:

These are good looking fonts, but there is a licensing problem: you
included a text file saying the fonts are free for non-commercial use
ONLY, which is contrary to our site policy, we are collecting only free
fonts, the non-commercial clause is a blocker.

At the upload time you had to make a choice about the license and select
either OFL (Open Font License) or PD (Public Domain) and you selected OFL.

So my question is: do you want to release the fonts under the OFL or
keep the non-commercial clause? In the second case, I am sorry to say
but they can't be hosted on our website.

Until I receive an answer I unpublished the font (it is visible only by
the submitter and the admins) so nobody will mistakenly download and use

Thank you for your attention.
