Re: checksum inconsistencies for virtual postscript fonts on CTAN

The list of fonts with SC/Osf in expert sets as against
fonts with SC/OsF only should be matched against the
list of fonts taken over from Linotype as against Adobe
fonts or fonts from other sources.  Linotype seems never to have
believed in the expert set (hence, most often, no ff ligatures, and
other limitations).  It is not likely to change.  Linotype has
sold itself to Heidelberg-something-or-other, and seems to have
gone out of the font business altogether.  I don't know who
pursues license questions.  Linotype used to be the most
sensitive of all the major houses.
