humm... you took over this package when it was orphaned?
Did you read: 

What is the status of the licence(s)?

Comment 2 Johan Cwiklinski 2007-11-16 05:30:21 UTC
I had not seen this thread.

I've mailed muhri.net's author about this licensing issue, waiting for him t
know if this should be clarified.

Otherwise, I'll close this bug and re-oprhan the package.

Thanks for pointing me out.

The answer I've just received is :

« Hi Joan,

It is very difficult for me to say, the themes are available for free and anyone
submitting the themes knows that. I already have a big tar with all the themes
in it. I think including a GPL assumption is a-OK.

So, is it OK to consider gkrellm-themes as GPL or not ? Maybe upstream package
should specify it ? I really don't know, I'm not expert on licencing issues :/

Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2007-11-18 01:26:36 UTC
I'm no expert, however, that seems like it wouldn't be sufficent... :(

Perhaps post to the fedora-devel list or fedora-legal and ask for more advice?
