Greetings everyone, [Please CC me as I'm not subscribed to the list.] one of the software I maintain contains several sets of images to change the theme/appearance of the software. Most images don't really have a source (they were done directly as png as far as I understand). However, a few themes comes from icon packs under GPL license whose icons have a SVG source. The situation is complicated because there is more image in the theme than in the original pack. The author took the *png* image from the pack and created some new image out of it (by removing the color or applying a color filter for example). What happened is that he downloaded the pack without the SVG source files. From there, I have a few questions: * Should I include the SVG source in the package for the images he didn't modify? * What about the image he modified? => My opinion is that since he based is work on the png, only the png need to be provided but I prefer to be safe than sorry, hence this question. * Some of the files with a SVG source come from KDE icon theme already packaged in the archive. Can I just add a comment in debian/copyright to say the SVG are in package X or do I have to copy the SVG in my own package? => Since Debian distribute the source for both package X (the KDE icon theme) and my package, I'd say the image are correctly acompanied with the source (both are in Debian archive) as per GPL-2 3.a) or GPL-3 6.d ("If the place to copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source may be on a different server"). Thanks for taking the time to read thus far. I'm waiting your answer to enlighten me as to what I should do to respect all the license and DFSG requirements. Best regards, Thomas Preud'homme
