Bug#321586: texi2html: Includes non-free image

Subject: texi2html: Includes non-free images
Package: texi2html
Version: 1.76-2
Severity: serious
Justification: CC Images are not compatible with DFSG

>From my report at

Is it possible for the images in texi2html to be replaced from
CC-Attr-Sharealike to a more compatible license that Debian will accept.

As the matter stands it seems you are actually claiming GPL'ed images to
be CC'ed, hence meaning we can't keep texi2html in the mainstream debian
which would mean a complete break down in quite a few of the packages.
The singular project which you got the images from claims it's all GPL,
which means that the images in texi2html is too.

As it stands, this problem is blocking the update of texi2html on Debian
which fixes 2 RC bugs (which are actually still unreplied to here).

To fix this we could split texi2html and have a -data package in
non-free (and the main package in contrib).  But this would mean 92
packages directly affected, and thousands more indirectly (glibc
build-deps on texi2html).

Will await upstream response for decision however.
