    vntex is the only package with metafonts not residing in

That's not what I see.

$ ls /.../texmf-dist/fonts/source
gregoriotex/  jknappen/  lh/  ptex-fonts/  public/  vntex/

Most of those others have been around for years.

    Maybe metafonts should be moved from
    /fonts/source/vntex/vnr to
    /fonts/source/public/vnr ?

Even if vntex were the only other subdir, I wouldn't see a reason to
move it. It is fine for a typeface family, or designer, or whatever, to
be in its own "supplier"-level directory. And, one more thing,
vntex.tds.zip provided the .mf files in fonts/source/vntex, and I
wouldn't want to change that without good reason ... --thanks, karl.
