claws-mail-theme package and I observed some issues with the license : no

clearly non-free licenses :
buuf, hash303030, hashA0A0A0 (CC-BY-NC-SA)

Logos-1.0.1, mongrel, mongrel2, New_Session, Phoenity, Plain_and_Bluish, stw,
Sylpholution, tml02c, tom_2.1.1, UltimateClawsMail0.5.1, XeNtish, ZX-0_1.1
