I think I didn't look closely enough. :)

The link you sent me is to the Brush author's interpretations of how
he/she thinks the license that they have chosen works. I mistook this
for the actual license. The actual license that they are using for the
brushes is Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 (which ironically, is what I
suggested that you ask if we could use). This license is fine for
Fedora. We do need to be sure that we give the original author of the
brushes attribution credit. A text file which accompanies the art that
gives credit to the brush author and a link to the brush website should
be sufficient.

Btw, the author really doesn't understand how the CC-BY license actually
works. However, please don't correct their misunderstandings, because I
suspect they would choose a different license that we would have
problems using. :)
