I've now got the copyright and licensing details for the Sarge stripe
in the splash image.  The author has placed it in the public domain,
but requests acknowledgement as an author if possible: I've
acknowleged this in the Inkscape SVG metadata, but it should probably
be added to the XPM header also.  I've converted it to SVG vector
format with Inkscape to make it easier to edit and change.  The files
are here:

The main image: This is the "preferred form for modification":

640x480 PNG:

The splash image (the PNG reduced to 14 colours)
I've not added any copyright notice--it was automatically generated by
the GIMP.

These are all yours; feel free to alter them as you like, and licence
them under whatever DFSG-free licence you prefer.  GPL is fine.

So all the copyright and licensing issues are OK.  The exception is
the Debian logo.

[For debian-legal:] Did anything come of the discussions in mid-August
regarding the licensing/trademark issues regarding the logo?  Are we
OK to use it?  Thanks!
