Dear Lazarus developers,
Below a mail from Paul Gevers highlighting a copyright issue of some icons used
in the new Lazarus RC.The issue is that the Debian copyright constraints are
quite strict in the definition of free software.This prevents Debian to
distribute, in the main archive, SW that users may not be able to modify like
stated by the CC-AND license.
Can you please advise on the best solution you see to fix this either on our
side or on yours?
