No worries, there will never be a licensing issue between the Stellarium team and me.  Should I write down a waiver for the use of the icon in Stellarium?  CC would apply for everyone else then.

Thank you very much for you work, Johan.

The license makes me uneasy, though, due to general unresolved issues
with licensing compatibility with the GPL, in the case exacerbated by
the fact that the .ico is embedded in the binary executable file on

If we are going to adopt CC licenses, at the very least we should look
into the way this is presented in the licensing documentation attached
to Stellarium's package on various platforms.

Expect to hear more about this in the future. I'm not calm enough at
the moment to think straight.
