Hey Paul,

Thanks for the feedback.

I have already asked the Boost moderators for SVN access to the boost
sandbox. I am planning to upload the files to
, John has already updated my user id so I can write to this location.
Where they go from there for use I am unsure but hopefully someone with
more experience with Quickbook/Boostbook can move them.

The delay in uploading them to the Sandbox is to do with two points
about licensing. They are:
1. Can I submit the files to the Boost Subversion repository under
a different license type to the BSL (I sent an email to the Boost
Moderators list). Yes I know people have stated previously that it is
ok ... but on this page it implies that items
submitted to the subversion repository will be licensed under the BSL.
I personally don't have an issue with this, but since my work is a
derivative of the Tango project I am unable to re-license the files from
the CCSA2.5 license.

2. I have sent an email to the Tango Artist list (see attachment)
clarifying exactly what I need to include with the SVG files to ensure
that I am compatible with the license.

If anyone wants the SVG (and PNG) files prior to them going into the
Sandbox please send me a private email. I would put them up on a web
server somewhere but I don't have a web presence.

Once these two points are sorted I will post the files to the Sandbox.

attached mail follows:



I would like to clarify what exactly I need to include from a licensing
perspective to use some of the Tango icons and icons that have been
derived from Tango Icons.


For more information on the use see on the Boost
Wiki. This URL also shows:

* Which icons are going to be used;

* The derived Black and White versions of the icons (I
apologise to the original authors; my background is not in graphic


(Note: Currently the PNG links for the Tango icons are not working as
the web server hosting appears to be
having some issues).


Currently my thoughts on what I need to do to be compatible with the
License type is to include a file located with the SVG files within the
Boost Subversion repository specifically to cover licensing. This file
(LICENSE.txt) will include:

1. An acknowledgement section stating that the original icons
were sourced from the Tango Desktop Project (with a URL link to the home


2. A license section stating that the SVG files are licensed
under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share-Alike 2.5 license. With a
URL to the official license site


Will this be sufficient or do I need to also include the Tango AUTHORS
file with the icons?


Any advice in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
