I have uploaded the archive file berafonts.zip to the 
/incoming directory at dante.ctan.org.  It contains the 
"Bera" Type1 fonts and all files required to use them
with LaTeX on the PC or Un*x platform.  Please, create a
new CTAN directory

and unpack the archive there. (Do not unpack the inner 
archive bera.zip.)

"Bera" is a set of three PostScript Type1 font families:
  Bera Serif (a slab-serif Roman), 
  Bera Sans (a Frutiger descendant), and 
  Bera Mono (monospaced/typewriter).  

The fonts were originally created by Bitstream, Inc. in 
TrueType format under the name "Bitstram Vera".  
Malte Rosenau converted them to the Type1 format;  the 
license required that the result was given a different 
name ("Bera").

The "Bera" fonts are released under the same license as 
the original "Vera" fonts (see the file LICENSE).  
Please, evaluate this license to deteemine whether the 
fonts need to be put into the "nonfree" branch of the
