OK.

It it the whole website for the fonts.  Since there is no other
documentation available, I packed the source site into a tar file and 
included it as documentation.  In an email exchange with the people
responsible for the release, I asked whether I could use parts or the
whole page for the package, and they responded positively.  They stated
that there is no other documentation available.

The LICENCE file is an excerpt from the html page, containing the licence
for these fonts.

Before I produce the new version, could someone clarify what I should do
in this case?  Not including any documentation seems wrong, since we
have permission to use text from the website.
