Hi there.
I know vrms is a guide not a definitive tool but would anyone like to

take a look at this:

####

timmy@freedom-zero:~$ vrms

human-icon-theme**********Human Icon theme
tangerine-icon-theme******Tangerine Icon theme

tango-icon-theme**********Tango Icon theme

timmy@freedom-zero:~$ sudo aptitude remove human-icon-theme

tangerine-icon-theme tango-icon-theme --purge ;vrms

Remove the following packages:
gobuntu-desktop
human-theme

ubuntu-artwork

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]

####

From what I can see gobuntu-desktop meta-package depends on the

non-free package tangerine-icon-theme.

Would someone like to fix this?

Tim

P.S. having just looked at the list I see a post about gobuntu artwork.
I imagine this ties in with that.

AIUI, the FSF consider CC-SA 2.5 to be free, but because its part of the

CC licences, wont support it.

Search down to "Creative commons" near the bottom.

Debian have issues with CC licences in general, and i belive none are
DFSG free.

Yes, that's right; the FSF considers CC-BY(-SA) free, and Debian don't

(mainly because of the anti-DRM stuff, iirc)

RMS used to not support CC because they promoted a load of licenses
that didn't permit verbatim noncommercial sharing worldwide, but CC
changed their policy and "discontinued" those licenses, so RMS now

supports them. I assume the FSF follows his change.
