fontmatrix included non-free code, Please see Debuan bug number "787350" datails.
I think that this package be affected by debian bug number "787350".
and, "fontmatrix-0.9.99-Source/src/icons/action-copy-char.svg" license is CC-BY-SA.
I suggests that resolve license problem and add license tag.
Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.
Where can i find the debian lintian output for fontmatrix. The link given in that bug is pointing to freecad package?
What am I missing to find in source tarball that says those files are cc-by-nc-sa ?
huh! licensecheck command in Fedora is unable to check licenses on svg files. You are correct those files are cc-by-sa and cc-by-nc-sa files.
I can fix this by recreating svg files.
There is source information given in application-fontmatrix-vectors.svg and application-fontmatrix-systray-vectors.svg files. I will use those png sources and using convert command save them as svg files and package it under cc-by-sa license. I will then change the license tag to
GPLv2+ and CC-BY-SA
Does this look okay to you?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
You have not replied to my question in comment#4. This bug will open forever if I will not get your opinion.

I has two questions.
1) What is "png sources" ? (author, copyright owner, source infomation, etc ...)
2) Is "png source" licensed under ?
If 1 is clear and 2 is Fedora acceptable license (E,g GPL, CC-BY-SA, etc...), It is OK.
I revisited this and did not understand why I thought last time to convert svg to png sources.
The simplest solution is to remove those 2 problematic non-free source application-fontmatrix-vectors.svg and application-fontmatrix-systray-vectors.svg files. They are not getting used anywhere as long as I tried to test fontmatrix again.
