non-free hide.png icon in Vidalia alpha branch

In Vidalia alpha Git branch, the src/vidalia/res/32x32/hide.png icon is licensed under the "CC Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike" license ( In my understanding, the non-commercial bit makes non-free, at least according to the Debian Free Software Guidelines.

I'd like to go on shipping Vidalia in Debian main (and I'm 200% sure weasel would not want to distribute a non-free one on, so this icon should be replaced.

Here are 4 possibly suitable replacements I've found on my Debian unstable system:

  • in the gnome-shell-common package: /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/ws-switch-arrow-down.svg
  • in the oxygen-icon-theme package: /usr/share/icons/oxygen/32x32/actions/arrow-down.png
  • in the nuvola-icon-theme package: /usr/share/icons/nuvola/32x32/actions/arrow-down.png /usr/share/icons/nuvola/32x32/actions/arrow-down-double.png

All these icons are shipped in Debian main, so have DFSG-free licenses.

Note that I've informed chiiph a few months ago, but he probably would not mind some help.

Also note that no released version of Vidalia ships this icon TTBOMK: only Git is affected.

If the icons I've suggested aren't good enough, is a nice source of images in the public domain.
