It looks like there are some freedom issues with Blender (logo), SuperTuxKart
(mascots) and The Battle for Wesnoth (add-ons).
First issue is Blender logo in blender package.
The logo is non-free: https://www.blender.org/about/logo/
They don't want this logo to be removed: https://developer.blender.org/T52380
Second issue is SuperTuxKart.
Beastie and Suzanne mascots cannot be free because Beastie is non-free
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_Daemon#Copyright) and Blender logo (included
with kart "Suzanne") is non-free.
GitHub issue is here: https://github.com/supertuxkart/stk-code/issues/2899
Also, they want to include Steam support which will destroy the freedom.
They're rejected to cancel this project:
Third issue is The Battle for Wesnoth.
They're changed licensing for addons, allowing any CC license:
Add-ons can be downloaded using a downloader inside game. I think, there are
two ways to download add-on. First is using add-on downloader and second is
trying to join a game room (online play) with add-on.
They're rejected to remove the downloader:
