Solar derived artwork under GPLv2+
 
For me there's no problem to license the image in GPLv2+.

But I think that right now Fedora is the holder of the artwork.

But if I had to do something, or write something, I will.

Let me know.

Cheers
Samuele

Subject: Solar derived artwork under GPLv2+

Would it be possible for the copyright holders of the solar artwork to
permit two derived images to be licensed under GPLv2+.
Images:
http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~brejc8/temp/background.png
http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~brejc8/temp/star.png

This would remove some complications around packaging the Plymouth solar
plugin.

You will be *always* the copyright holder for your work. By signing the
CLA you allow Fedora to use your work under a certain license, but your
rights remain intact.



But if I had to do something, or write something, I will.

Let me know.


This email should be enough.

Solar derived artwork under GPLv2+
 
So the final license will be CC-BY-SA and/or GPLv2+?
Currently I'm preparing package for Solar KDE
Themes (rhbz#467943) and it's now CC-BY-SA.

From my understanding, it's both.
It was originally released as CC-BY-SA and the author just allowed also
GPLv2+

I just wanted the two images dual licensed under GPLv2. The rest can
stay as CC-BY-SA which (AFAIK) is a better licence for artwork.

The best option is dual license, both CC-BY-SA and GPL, otherwise you
can go in murky waters: the GPL talks about the source code, and what is
the source fode for those two images? The layered .xcf.

So having a consistent (dual) license is the easiest way.

Ok, sounds good for me. So I'm going to use multiple licenses for
solar-kde-theme. CC-BY-SA for artwork and GPLv2 for source code
of themes (it's inherited work from original KDM theme).
Thanks!
