Thank you for the review, it is very much appreciated! Both font and P-D
corrections looks correct (I previously think I let the P-D stuff fall
through to the Files: * CC-BY-SA glob since they had been modified in
Red Eclipse), but I think this makes more sense on second thought.

I have pushed your changes to the git repos for redeclipse.

Anyone up for sponsoring redeclipse and redeclipse-data for this change?

Right, provided we now know that it is free it is indeed a quite bad bug
that it's in non-free. I was arguing "safe" based on the free-ness state
being previously-determined-nonfree-now-unknown.

Again a big thanks for your review and patches Markus!
