I mean that I'm verbally licensing Code2nnn under the plain GPLv3 *without* any exceptions. I only explain why the FontException is not applicable to SourceForge. It's so because SourceForge allows only ClassPath exception or plain GPLv3, so no FontException at all.

I don't understand what you're saying here. Do you mean that you are verbally
licensing Code2nnn under the GPL with the Font Exception? It's not part of the
GPL by default...

FWIW, some of us consider OFL to be non-free (it doesn't allow sale alone), so
won't install fonts using it at all.
