Not sure if this is relevant to the list, but I know some folks would like to have a nice font for programming, or even just for terminal windows.
Fabrizio Shiavi is a designer looking for funding for his font project: he's trying to raise $220,000 to finish writing his font at which point he will release the font under a creative commons licence. If the goal is not reached, it will remain a commercially licensed product, with an offer to licence it for $20 to anyone who helps fund the Indiegogo project.

Complete glyph set is here: http://www.fsd.it/fonts/uc/pr+.htm - note it has roman, greek, cyrillic, hebrew, vietnamese, box drawing and other Unicode characters.
I like the font and I think it's worth supporting: with 18 days left I'm not expecting that he'll end up releasing it under "CC BY", since he's managed to raise about $3700 out of his goal.
Apologies if this has no relevance to you.
