Got a font that I want to do a custom subset for on the Web - picking contextual alternates and discarding unneeded characters to help keep the file size down. FontSquirrel has a great generator, but a lot of the fonts come with this notification:
The license for this font is the SIL OFL license. This license does not allow us to redistribute derivative versions of the font without wholesale name changes inside and out of the font. Until we figure out a reasonable method of delivering these to you and complying with the license, you will have to use the Webfont Generator yourself on these, renaming the fonts appropriately.
What constitutes as 'wholesale name changes inside and out of the font'? I want to comply with what seems to be an excellent license correctly.
Suppose it's also worth asking what constitutes a derivative work as well. The font I'm interested in is available on Google Fonts, and it seems like a custom subset was made to distribute on their CDN. Is subsetting not something that triggers this stuff at all?
I've been trying to wrap my head around the SIL site but am not doing a very good job.
