Music on hold sound files for Asterisk.
Oddly, the asterisk documentation indicates this is non-free (http://www.asterisk.org/astdocs/node4.html) yet that's contradicted by but LICENSE-asterisk-moh-opsound-alaw file.
However, just to be doubly sure I checked the upstream sites and at least this bit:
manolo_camp-morning_coffee - Manolo Camp
firstname.lastname@example.org - http://ccmixter.org/people/ManoloCamp
is cc-by-nc and this:
neno_project-system - Reno Project
email@example.com - http://www.jamendo.com/en/album/23661
seems to be cc-by-nc-nd.
If there is explicit cc-by-sa permission given, is there any evidence of that anywhere?

Yes, there were older music on hold files that didn't have a free license.

Well, sure, I'm familiar with the license of the works from opsound. The problem is that there seems to be no indication that the stuff came from opsound.
g. I guess if you can find it somewhere with an acceptable license then we can use it as that license, but if you follow the URLs (which is the only real indication of where the the files come from) you get licensing information that conflicts.
Not to mention that opsound works are cc-by-sa 2.5, not 3.0 as stated in the LICENSE file.
So, massively confusing all around; the asterisk guys really seem have trouble with the whole license thing. I honestly don't know what to do; my feeling is that we know we have at least one source that gives us a useful license, and the 2.5/3.0 thing is pretty minor, but I'd still like to see if spot has anything to add. This has been sitting around for over a year so it shouldn't really hurt to wait a bit more so that we're sure we're OK.
The lack of indication that these files came from opsound is ... troubling. Adding Jared to the CC here, as he may be able to work with Digium to get this licensing confusion cleared up.
Is there any update on clarifying the actual licenses for these files?

Does this Asterisk wiki page (dated 2014) count as clarification / evidence of the Opsound sourcing / licensing?
Alright. That should be sufficient for this to move forward, barring any contradictory evidence. Lifting FE-Legal.

Jeffrey with the unblocking of legal are you intending to progress this?
As per policy if there is no response within a week this bug will be closed so others of interest may take it up.
I'm no longer interested in packaging this...
