There's no real restriction on the font redistribution, both fonts are
redistributable without issue.  If you do redistribute them they need
to include a copy of their license (which basically just says, don't
modify these fonts and do include this license).  The rest of the
theme is GPLv2 so you can do with it what you please.  Blu-abstract is
derived in no small part from Graphite, which is GPLv2.  blue-abstract
is thus GPLv2.

Our core themes are GPLv2, any third party theme can be distributed
under the license chosen by the themer.  A fair number of themes in
the past have been Creative Commons licensed in various ways.
