Where was the removal of skins/common/images/cc-* reported?
I see the commit at
but not a bug # or discussion.
They do look like copied from http://creativecommons.org/
which is at least contradictory with the statement at
README that only lists cc-by-nc-sa.png and cc-by-sa.png
I would prefer to replace them from upstream, but I'm
not sure how will that be received.
I discover I noted on r66559 its license as a problem
but there was little attention. It merits a wider discussion (although
it looks problematic).
An option would be to make new icons similar to how they are used on
commons see eg. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Cc-by-sa-3.0
That's a combination of
The symbols are probably ineligible to ©, but they may still be
(and at least on File:Cc-sa.svg there seems to have been a
misunderstanding when uploaded, as
do mention them)
A nice option are those of
and of course there are the debian replacement buttons.
