Note that the GNU FSDG are more liberal than Debian’s guidelines when it
comes to “non-functional data” such as game artwork:

That said, the “NC” bit can probably cause practical problems, such as
if someone sells a GuixSD DVD, or if a company runs ‘guix publish’ and
happens to redistribute the thing.

Regardless, thanks for your work, Adam!
