Hi,

as can be seen here:

The Castle wallpaper is a source of possible copyright violation confusion. The message logs on the trunk of PySolFC are delightfully terse and non helpful, and it is not clear if this is a public domain/free-as-in-speech image or not. Please comment here and on the wikipedia pages.

    I found this image in the linux distro some years ago. (I think it was RedHat 6.x or 7.x). I do not know what the license was. The file has been removed from svn for decrease the package size.
