Licensing problem with kdeedu (kstars)

A bugreport has been filled by the SUSE legal department regarding licensing problems in kstars (part of kdeedu3).

The problem prevents inclusion of this package in distribution.

The bugreport reads as follows:

Whereas the README.images file in kstars is informative, it unfortunately does
not precisely state which _files_ are licensed under which license. It rather
states descriptions of images which are licensed under certain licenses.

The unacceptable licenses from the README.images file would be:


Thus, please examine which _files_ in kstars (if any) are licensed under the
above licenses. If such files exist, they should be removed.

You can read the bugreport here:

So can anybody please clarify which files in kstars are under which license?
