SuperTuxKart 0.7 Licenses

SuperTuxKart 0.7 Licenses

Postby Gallaecio » 22 Dec 2010, 14:40

While packaging 0.7, I opened COPYING file. Something suprised me: there are non-free data licenses among them:

http://creativecommons.org/licenses/sampling+/1.0/
http://www.soundsnap.com/licence
(I'm checking Free Art License at this moment, since I'm not sure about that one)

If not possible to avoid such licenses, would it be possible to at least package such data as add-ons, not in the main package? What do you think?

Hi,

yes this is known :(
If you can provide high-quality, free replacements for the problematic files we will gladly accept them. Free sound effects are especially hard to find

Perhaps you should make an upcoming release (0.7.1? 0.8.0?) a target for removal/replacement of all inappropriately licensed content.

We have been progressively improving on this front, but we don't want low-quality replacements, we will need good quality replacements :)

What we need :
* engine sounds
* a shooting sound
* a bowling ball rolling sound
* a bowling ball strike sound
* a goo sound for the bubblegum

if someone can make good free sounds for these, we will include them for sure

What if you post about it in the OpenGameArt forums? There are plenty of artist there who might know of such replacements, or even record them for the occasion :)

And just another thing about licenses: how do you find out which license covers addons? Are all of them under the same license?

Nice, thanks :) let's see what comes of this

At this time, the add-ons licensing is a mess :( Hopefully this will be cleaned up soonish
