Re: Licensing: dual licenses - icons

Hello there,

My package kmenu-gnome entails some icons taken from right to left by
upstream.

Right to left as in random places? If so upstream needs to verify the licenses of these icons carefully.

Upstream uses a dual license. I've changed the license from
GPL/LGPL to LGPLv2 on the last rebuild.

You are not allowed to change the license of a package. However when you distribute software which is dual licensed, you are allowed to distribute under any one of those license if you wish to do so.

However I'm not sure that the icons taken from GPL'd packages may be
relicensed under the LGPL.

It does not. However the other way around is possible. What problem are you trying to solve?
