I hope that whatever license is chosen it is meant to be be dual with
GNU GPL under which they are implicitly licensed now.  GNU FDL is a
peculiar license, incompatible with GNU GPL(!) and in some variants
verging on non-free, whether cleared by or not.  If the
files were GNU FDL license I am afraid many would nave to look for
replacements under a different license.

As someone who likes the current images and their current license I
wonder what is the best way to keep them used when the documentation of
my projects is compiled.
