While reviewing desktop-base_6.0.4.tar.gz, I noticed some other issues
with the debian/copyright file (as in

 (a) there's no information about debian-desktop-logo.png (which still
has to be fixed as far as DFSG-freeness is concerned, I am reopening
#587668 because of this), which is derived (by whom? copyright?
license?) from the Debian Open Use Logo (with "Debian", unfortunately,
but the "Debian" text has to be dropped) and from the "floating gnu"
created by the Nevrax Design Team, which is

 (b) the copyright and license of ./usplash/moreblue-orbit/theme.c
and ./usplash/moreblue-orbit/Makefile are not documented in the
debian/copyright file (they can be copied from the comments of the
files themselves)

 (c) the debian/copyright file fails to mention that the Nightly and
the Moreblue Orbit themes "are both derived from the Debian Open Use
Logo without “Debian”"; the same holds
for ./backgrounds/debian-blueish-wallpaper.svg,
for ./splash/gnome-splash-curves.png, and
for ./backgrounds/gnome-debian-sid-wp.{xcf|png}

 (d) according to ./kdm-theme/moreblue-orbit/GdmGreeterTheme.desktop ,
Andre Ferreira is not the sole author of the Moreblue Orbit theme:
there are also Fathi Boudra and Valessio S. Brito

 (e) the debian/copyright file fails to mention
that ./splash/nightly-splash.{xcf|png} is derived from the GNOME foot
logo (copyright? license?); the same holds
for ./splash/gnome-debian-sid-splash.{xcf|png}

 (f) according to ./ksplash-theme/spacefun/Theme.rc there are other
authors for the SpaceFun theme, besides Valessio S. Brito

 (g) it seems that ./ksplash-theme/spacefun/1600x1200/icon
{5_anim|5}.png is derived from the KDE logo (copyright? license?)
