whether you need permission from the author (if so, you have got
mine for the Kiosk chapter ;) ), you should probably ask Jürgen
or Ciarran to be sure (and please let us know).

Thanks - as both books are under the same "free" license, I think
asking Jürgen or Ciarran is not necessary. But I like to inform the
original authors when we use their texts. ;-)

FYI: Looks like the only thing left to build the book in the Build
Service is the font definition in the susedoc package:
contain references to fonts in the agfa-fonts package (which has a
commercial license).

Yes, that's true. Unfortunately I hadn't had the time to look into it.
It's one of my todos on my list. Patches are welcome. :-)

Does anybody know if there are really free fonts that can be used
instead of the agfa-fonts (Note: we need ISO-8858-5 and ISO-8859-15
or UTF-8) ?

You could try the DejaVu or LinuxLibertine fonts. However, you will
soon hit the problematic field of typography: As far as I know,
LinuxLibertine has only a serif font, they are working on a sans
serif at the moment.

DejaVu is rather complete and have serif, sans serif, and a monospace
font. The monospace font is a bit too wide in my point of view.

...and how to overwrite the settings in the susedoc package with
that fonts?

Try to set the environment variable FOP_CONFIG_FILE.
