Yes, remember that the Fedora stance on freedom is there to make sure
that anyone who receives Fedora can also modify and redistribute it to
others.  If our content violates that precept, it means we've failed our
users.  I'm sure that Samuele doesn't want that to happen.  If he can
use his actual photo or some other free element to replace the katana in
the image, there's not a problem.

(There is the question of the images hosted on the Fedora wiki that
include this non-free stuff, but we can handle that separately.)

Yeah, I don't get this at all.  I *love* Solar and have been saying that
since it was first introduced!

Let's all take a moment to cool down a bit.  Samuele, maybe we haven't
done a good job explaining all the requirements for free art in Fedora,
or why we have those requirements.  I'd be happy to help explain that
further if it doesn't make sense to you.  Or if there's something you
disagree on, let's talk about it.

Honestly, there's only a few things that need to happen:

* Replace any non-free elements with free ones.  Really, the original
artist should take the opportunity to do this rather than have the task
fall on others.  But there's no reason it can't be a team effort if
Samuele asks for help.

* Fix the wiki to remove any non-free stuff, with an appropriate note of

* It would be nice if we knew the actual source of the image instead of
guessing.  What if it's actually free, and we just don't know it because
we don't know the source?  Until then, we have to assume it's not, of
