License updated to OFL-1.1 per SPDX license list.

@Zaeroses
IMO the current description sufficiently indicates that the whole MPLUS family is included.
I have not explored the other MPLUS packages beyond figuring out they were outdated [at the time] and putting this together as a replacement.

I believe the license field for the PKGBUILD should be 'OFL' for this package? Could you check that?

Source: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PKGBUILD#license

The ... OFL licenses are special cases and could not be included in the licenses package... For the sake of the license array, it is treated as a common license (... license=('OFL'))

And I am definitely not certain on this, but it might be worth checking if it would be good to include the styles included in mplus fonts in the description (sans-serif and monospace): https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Font_package_guidelines#Package_description

Lastly, just to add to the comment I'm making anyway, I'm looking at the other mplus font packages (particularly mplus-font that I adopted) and trying to work out how they fit together, in case there's some good changes that can be made for all these mplus font packages, perhaps you could respond if you know some more about those? (but they seem largely long-outdated, might not be particularly important right now)

Added (git version) to the end to make it a bit more readable.

Thanks for the package! Was bummed when I found out that the ttf-mplus repo was still using the old fonts. However, I feel that the description for this description should be changed to tell users that this is using the new MPLUS fonts.
