Upstream IS SURE about the licenses of the icons see:

As you can see icons are either GPL'd or LGPL'd.

Now, which license is appropriate ? GPLv2, LGPLv2 or GPLv2/LGPLv2 ?

As I can see GPLv2 is more appropriate. Do you second ?

PS: we are working to replace the icons in the sources by requiring
the appropriate packages. However, we are struggling to cope with the
differences among various distributions. Progress is being made.
