pinball included non-free content and missing license tag.

I check pinball source file, I found other licensed content.
But license tag is missing. and found non-free content.
I check README. There are derived work, and original content is licensed under Free Art License.
README is: "pinball-0.3.2/data/gnu/README"
This license is Fedora acceptable license.
But Free Art license text file is not found. (E,g license.txt)
Question: Is this is OK ?
License URI: http://artlibre.org/licence/lal/en/
But I check GNU webpage, "GNU" is trademark.
It is non-free (Trademark Problem).
I think that there contents used gnu head and hard logo, there is not GPL.
It is license problem, It is non-free.
GNU Hard: https://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/logo.html
GNU Head: https://www.gnu.org/graphics/heckert_gnu.svg
I check there sites, GNU Hard logo license is GFDL 1.2 or later, and GNU Head logo license is Free Art License.
But GNU is trademark. (See 1) and Hard logo source code license is unclear. (Is this is GFDL compatible ?)
Source code: https://www.gnu.org/graphics/hurd_mf.html
I suggest that resolve trademark problem, add license tag, and resolve license problem.
Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.
The GNU head trademark guidelines (on the link you posted), say:
This image is available for use under either the GFDL 1.3, the Free Art
License, or under CC-BY-SA 2.0.
Thus, the pinball usage is not an issue.
The Hurd table (and its images) are clearly licensed as GPLv2+, see data/hurd/README.txt
I think it is extremely unlikely that the FSF has an issue with the Hurd table (and its art) being under the GPLv2+ license.
To correct the License tag, just amend it to be:
# core license is GPL+
# gnu table licenses are (GFDL or Free Art or CC-BY-SA) and GPLv3 and CC-BY-SA
# hurd table license is GPLv2+
License: GPL+ and (GFDL or Free Art or CC-BY-SA) and GPLv3 and CC-BY-SA and GPLv2+
Lifting FE-Legal, as this is just a license tag correction. Please apply it in Rawhide.
