I'm considering a project to make a derivate of an Open Font licensed under SIL, I understand the derivate should follow the same license, but does it have to be publicly published?
The SIL site gives contradictory messages, or at least contradictory to my limited comprehension on legal jargon:https://openfontlicense.org/how-to-modify-ofl-fonts/
In the same page it first states:
You are making changes to an existing open font and creating a derivative which means that new version must also remain open and should be publicly released.
3.6 Do I have to make any derivative fonts (including extended source files, build scripts, documentation, etc.) publicly available?
No, but please consider sharing your improvements with others. You may find that you receive in return more than what you gave.
I understand it's best practice to publish it, just want to know if it's mandatory. Thanks!
