And some person (Han The Thanh) tried to get information from them,
because he wanted to distribute a modified version, and didn't get a
response for months.

Do you know which person we could contact among the people?  

Regards, Frank

P.S. The fonts are excluded from xfonts-scalable-nonfree due to "no
license statement", but included in gsfonts-other-nonfree because of the
license statement on CTAN, the origin of which is now unclear.
